Telemedicine

Legal and ethical considerations

  • Telemedicine is defined as the provision of healthcare services, through the use of information and communications technology, ICT, in situations where the two health professionals or the health professional and the patient are not in the same location.
  • The e-ENERCA Telemedicine platform is dedicated to health professionals for sharing complex cases facilitating their diagnosis. Since it is open to public in its first stage, patients can also use it, under their own responsibility.
  • This platform has to assure the secure transmission of medical data and information through text, sound, images or other forms needed for the prevention, diagnosis, treatment and follow-up of patients.
