So What is Telemedicine? The term 'telemedicine' derives from the Greek 'tele' meaning 'at a distance' and the present word 'medicine' which derives from the Latin 'mederi' meaning 'healing'. In the jargon of today, telemedicine refers to the delivery of health care at a distance.

Recent Innovative Enhancements for Mobile-Telemedicine:
Vitals & Monitor Data e-Bridge, GD’s award winning mobile telemedicine system, now has the ability to securely capture and send vital signs, medical data, and images for consults between providers in the field and physicians. This adds a new dimension for better patient care. Parameters acquired by an array of medical devices such as monitors, non-invasive blood pressure, SpO2, weight, ultrasound, otoscope and more can now be combined with text, forms, voice, pictures, video, and live video. This gives a complete documentation of a patient’s condition for mobile integrated healthcare, community paramedicine, and emergent EMS calls. - Responsive Innovation.
“We can try to describe things all day long. The tree was this big around. The whole roof was ripped off the top of the car… But to be able to show it gives the complete picture.”
~ Matt Tatum, Deputy Director, Henry County Public Safety, Martinsville, VA
“The video expedites diagnosis and determining tPA eligibility. The hospital can make sure the CT scan is available, and physicians can see the patient’s condition for themselves.”
~ Heather Childress, EMS Battalion Chief, Lynchburg Fire Department, Lynchburg, VA
