Medicine Through Videoconferencing
Read the Real World Case 3: Brain Saving Technologies, Inc. and the T-Health Institute: Medicine through Videoconferencing (pp. 236-237).
In a three- to five-page paper (not including the title page or reference page), respond to the following:

From the perspective of the patient, explain how you would feel about being diagnosed by a doctor who could be hundreds or thousands of miles from you. Describe any expectations or concerns you would have about that kind of experience.
Discuss other professions, aside from health care and education that could benefit from the application of some of the technologies discussed in this case. Explain how they would derive business value from these projects. Develop two proposals in different professional settings.
The deployment of IT in health professions is still very much in its infancy. Discuss other uses of technology that could potentially improve the quality of health care. Compose a list of at least three alternatives.

Your paper must be formatted according to APA style as outlined in the Ashford Writing Center, and it must include citations and references for the text and at least two scholarly sources.

Carefully review the Grading Rubric for the criteria that will be used to evaluate your assignment.
