In the world we live in now a days, technological progress has led to remarkable advances that save lives and improve their quality. The intensive flow of information certainly impacts rather one of the most dynamic sectors of the economy that is health. In this globalized world... Telehealth has pride of place: the absence of geographical barriers between professionals and users makes that diagnoses and interventions can be given to hundreds of thousands of ...

miles. In theory, any user could consult with any professional in the globe.

Unleash the physical walls of the clinics and hospitals, health interaction has a noticeable impact, which can be of enormous benefit to society in the same way that the reduction of the knowledge asymmetry is. Telehealth must therefore be understood as a powerful tool that helps to increase access and quality of health services.

It applies here the same logic of face care medicine: attention should also move increasingly complex of hospitals and tertiary procedures for local hospitals, to communities and the users of the same household. It makes sense and fits especially in the context of primary health caresolving in order to strengthen national health systems. Thanks to the tool, combined with the technology, painful displacements can be avoided, providing the comfort of users and the optimization of scarce resources, allowing them to be directed where they are most needed. It is a sophisticated toy, but a tool that can contribute to building a healthier and more just world.

There are two strategies that make the telehealth is central to the rise of the coverage of health services. The first is the effective and immediate therapeutic response to situations related to clinical cases that without this technology, could only be solved in more complex centers. The second strategy refers to the provision of formative second opinion, which contributes to the training of professionals in remote areas, encouraging their stay. Considering the increased life expectancy, the essential promotion of preventive actions and advances in medicine - that enable the treatment of many diseases to which they had no therapeutic possibilities in the past - certainly require more healthcare investments in the coming years. The more resources invested in an inclusive and equitable manner, enabling higher quality service to health services, the better!
