Telemedicine is the use of telecommunications technology to provide real-time health care to patients without the doctor and patient having to be at the same location.
Telemedicine through My Health Africa is delivered using video-conferencing (3G/4G/WI-FI connections) or voice-only-conferencing (for low bandwidth connections) via a secure platform specifically built for the healthcare industry in Africa with the highest standards.
A patient can easily use a smart phone, tablet or computer with a video camera (required for video calls) and an internet connection.
