  • Q: What is telemedicine?
    A: In brief, telemedicine is a fast growing application of clinical medicine where medical information is transferred via telephone, the Internet or electronic communication or networks for the purpose of consulting, and even for remote medical procedures or examinations.

    Telemedicine can be health professionals discussing a case over the phone, or using satellite technology and video-conferencing equipment to conduct a real-time consultation between medical specialists in different locations or even different countries. It is the use of electronic/digital communications and IT for the delivery of clinical care.

    It is healthcare at a distance. Telemedicine often refers to the provision of clinical services while telehealth can refer to clinical and non-clinical services such as medical education, administration, and research. e-Health and telehealth are also often used. Telemedicine is practiced on the basis of real time (synchronous) and store-and-forward (asynchronous). Real time telemedicine may be as simple as a telephone call or as complex as local or remote robotic surgery. Store-and-forward telemedicine involves acquiring medical data such as medical images or biosignals and transmitting the data to a doctor specialist at a convenient time for later assessment or diagnosis. Telemedicine is especially important for people living in isolated, rural communities and remote regions but it is currently growing in virtually all medical areas. Telemedicine is often a communication tool between a general practitioner and a specialist.

  • Q: What does the HDHP in your name, “Telemed Health HDPP” stand for?
    A: HDHP in our name stands for HIPPA Dicom HL7 and PACS
  • Q: Does a doctor have to be in a telemedical facility?
    A: Many states in the U.S. have no specific laws concerning Telemedicine, while other states do. In the case where there are no specific laws concerning telemedicine, the existing law is likely to be applicable regarding the dispensing of medical advice, medications and treatments. It is advisable to know the laws that govern in your location. Consider all of the uses and definitions of telemedicine and it will become obvious that some uses of telemedicine don't require the presence of a medical doctor while others do.
  • Q: What is the symbolism in your logo?
    What minds at GTR can conceive and believe, we can achieve; and we believe that we are challenging the dominant paradigm by altering material, 
							space, and time.
    A: This is an original logo design that we created from some very old and ancient concepts that perhaps we are just beginning to understand in today's modern and nuclear medicine and healthcare. The figure of the man is Leonardo Da Vinci's Vitruvian Man (1492) � the same year that Columbus discovered America. Da Vinci designed this figure in a circle and a square to express admiration for the works of the 27th century BC Roman architect, Vitruvius, who created De architectura. Vitruvian covers subjects, which he saw as relating to architecture. This included many aspects, which range from medicine to mathematics, to astronomy, and to meteorology. In the Roman belief, architecture needed to take into account everything touching on the physical and intellectual life of man and his surroundings. Vitruvius also studied human proportions and his observations were captured in this drawing by Leonardo da Vinci � �Homo Vitruvianus� or �Vitruvian Man�. Da Vinci refined these theories of proportions and perfect shapes of the circle and the square.

    The background of our logo is the Yin and the Yang � the antitheses or mutual correlations, combining to create a unity of opposites, or two mutually correlated opposites. The concept of yin and yang, two primal opposing but complementary principles or cosmic forces is thought to be found in all non-static objects and processes in the universe. This paradox is the foundation of most branches of Chinese philosophy, as well as traditional Chinese medicine. This medical theory asserts that processes of the human body are interrelated and in constant interaction with the environment. Traditional Chinese medicine practitioners believe signs of disharmony help them to understand, treat and prevent illness and disease.

    If you understand the concept of Yin Yang; and you understand why Da Vinci honored 27th century BC Roman architect, Vitruvius with the concept of Vitruvian Man, you understand the basic implications of GTR�s logo. Some people also have a concept of the heuristic mysteries of the square, the triangle, the circle and the straight lines that can also be found in our logo. These symbols are seemingly set in an enlightened space where GTR�s modern, hairless Virtruvian Man stands for the letter “T” in GTR; and he has apparently bent and ripped the Yin from the Yang. While, each person can find his or her own meaning in our logo� or not� our slogan is: What minds at GTR can conceive and believe, we can achieve; and we believe that we are challenging the dominant paradigm by altering material, space, and time. ©
