The MMPF E-Med Program

What is e-medicine/telemedicine?

The world health organization’s definition encapsulates our vision

“The delivery of health care services, where distance is a critical factor, by all health care professionals using information and communication technologies for the exchange of valid information for diagnosis, treatment and prevention of disease and injuries, research and evaluation, and for the continuing education of health care providers, all in the interests of advancing the health of individuals and their communities”

Types of Telemedicine

Asynchronous (Store-and-send)
Telemedicine that involves the exchange of prerecorded data between two or more individuals at different times e.g Lab results sent from Lab to doctor electronically.

Synchronous (Real-time/Interactive)
Involved individuals are simultaneously present for immediate exchange of information, as in the case of videoconferencing

The Program Purpose

  • To provide specialized clinical support to both our volunteer providers and patients
  • To overcome geographical barriers by connecting users who are not in the same physical location (intra-country and inter-country)
  • It involves the use of Information and Communication Technologies (synchronous and asynchronous)
  • Ultimate goal is to improve health outcomes and provide for follow up for our patients.

The Program Benefits

  • Telemedicine has been advocated in situations in which:
    • The health professional on duty has little or no access to expert help
    • It is able to offer remote physician access to otherwise unavailable specialist opinions providing reassurance to both doctors and patients
  • Telemedicine offers opportunities for continuing medical education to practitioners in remote locations
  • Telemedicine also provides opportunities for learning and professional development by facilitating the dissemination of general information and remote training of health-care professionals
