MSF’s telemedicine system was launched in April 2010. A total of 3136 paediatric cases (<18 years age) were submitted (56% of all telemedicine cases) from April 2010 to June 2017.
Paediatric telemedicine: the experience of MSF
In 2017, Daniel Martinez Garcia, together with Sophie Delaigue, Jaap Karsten, Richard Wootton, Raghu Venugopal, submitted an abstract to the MSF Paediatric Days, entitled "Paediatric telemedicine: the experience of Médecins Sans Frontières".
His abstract was accepted and presented as a PaedTalk.
Telemedicine helps to bridge the gap between remote areas and large hospitals, if you are curious about this system, an article about MSF’s telemedicine service is available here.
A Retrospective Analysis of Pediatric Cases Handled by the MSF Tele-Expertise System (2014) is also available here.
