State (Of Georgia) leads the way in telemedicine
Communications, imaging and computing are revolutionizing the distribution of technical skills.
Telemedicine offers a means by which patients and doctors can be connected while spanning the "distance" problem.
There still needs to be more trained physicians that percolate through the institutions of "underserved communities" - allowing someone who has intimate knowledge to return back and provide expert care. Some balance between telemedicine and "upclose and personal care" needs to be made.
