I can do everything but touch the patient … I see a lot of studies that say telemedicine is equivalent to being there. But I actually think there is a case for saying at times telemedicine is better than being there.
Remote consultations through GlobalMed’s telemedicine network have significantly optimized medical transfers from our oil platforms to hospitals, reducing the risks related to night flights and aerial operations.
