The objective of this paper is to provide a snapshot of the applications of wireless telemedicine systems. A brief review of the spectrum of these applications and the potential benefits of these efforts will be presented, followed by successful case studies in electronic patient record, emergency telemedicine, teleradiology, and home monitoring. It is anticipated that the progress carried out in these efforts and the potential benefits of emerging mobile technologies will trigger the development of more applications, thus enabling the offering of a better service to the citizen.||URI:||http://ktisis.cut.ac.cy/handle/10488/7222||ISSN:||1558-4143 (online)||DOI:||10.1109/MAP.2002.1003651||Rights:||© 2002 IEEE||Type:||Article|
