Telemedicine is the remote diagnosis and treatment of patients by means of telecommunications technology.  Telemedicine takes place every day, across wires, or wireless, through a video conference system, the Internet, or even by telephone and fax.  Telemedicine has the potential to increase the reach of medical care to the entire population.  This has the potential to reduce the costs of care while increasing the quality of life of those patients it touches.  Realtime telemedicine technology such as video conferencing has traditionally been expensive and unreliable.  To provide reliable, secure, realtime telemedicine requires a large investment in infrastructure.  Reducing costs and increasing reliability is critical for mass adoption of telemedicine.   Med-RT provides telemedicine services that allow for mass adoption by increasing reliability while reducing costs to work towards the vision of healthcare for everyone.
