Realising the promise of true telemedicine

I am probably starting to sound a little repetitive here, but we made a commitment to universal access to health in 1948 and we’ve had telemedicine to help bridge some critical access gaps since at least 1964, yet we’re still not there. It would be a gross misrepresentation to say that we’ve not made a lot of progress since, especially in the past two years — I only wish it was voluntary progress.
