A difference exists between robotic aided surgery and telesurgery Only to use when a skilled surgeon cannot be physically present? (war or in rural hospitals) Use in every day surgery to increase productivity? (even when a specialist could drive or fly in) A Christian persective on Telemedicine What is Telemedicine? Definition: the remote diagnosis and treatment of patients by means of telecommunications technology Categories of
Telemedicine: telemedicine has three main categories. . .
Store and Forward, Remote Monitoring, Interactive Our focus: aspects of telemedicine within the hospital Christians called to service and healing
Safety verses affordability
Specialist surgeons become available
People living in remote areas without surgery they need available can still receive it Group Consensus: No telesurgical procedure use at all Questions? We all agree that from our research and personal experience with new technologies, telemedicine will only become more efficient, affordable, safe, and ultimately popular. There will always be a need for humans, due to the inflexibility of machines. As long as these machines and the software that runs them are built and programmed with extreme caution and focus they will
partner with human workers to create a better experience in the hospital for both workers and patients. Bibliography Schlag PM, Moesta K, Rakovsky S, Graschew G. Telemedicine: The New Must for
