Academy seeks examples of use of telemedicine

Orthopaedists with examples of current applications in the field of telemedicine in orthopaedic surgery are asked to contact the health policy department, (800) 346-2267. The Academy is looking for ways in which medical information has been electronically transferred from one site to another for purposes of patient care, patient and professional education, consultation, research and public health. It can include "telesurgery," satellite transmissions and videotape teleconferencing.
