Telemedicine transforms how effectively ConnectMed can support and provide long-term medical care.  Our teams use Zoom, FaceTime, WhatsApp, and the like to stay in touch with patients and our network of local providers.

Telemedicine also provides educational experiences to medical students and trainees.  In conjunction with some of our medical outreach trips, we broadcast or record telemedicine conferences from partner sites for medical students and professionals in the U.S. and abroad.  These conferences consist of academic presentations, clinical interviews with patients, and opportunities to view surgeries directly over the surgical field.  These experiences provide exposure to medical cases, conditions, and approaches that improve overall professional abilities.  They also improve conference participants’ cultural competencies by giving them opportunities to remotely care for patients and families from different countries.
