More and more I encounter the issue of severe scarcity of clinical talent in various projects around the world. It is particularly applicable in large and populous countries such China, Indonesia, Vietnam etc. We have been working on tele-medicine platforms and applications as a way of addressing this issue. Our pilot projects include clinical specialties that have share aspects of primary care, such as obstetrics and gynecology and pediatrics.
Based on your experience, could you share ideas which clinical specialties and areas are more appropriate for telemedicine. Are there any particular pitfalls that I should be aware of?
