UBC Medicine has reported on the eHealth Strategy Office’s report produced for the World Health Organization on their website:
The office, headed by Associate Professor Kendall Ho and part of the Faculty of Medicine, was recruited for the job of writing the overview report, which summarizes the results of a 2009 survey on the level of telemedicine development in four areas – teledermatology, telepathology, teleradiology and telepsychology…
“I was both honoured and humbed by the WHO’s request,” says Dr. Ho, a member of the Department of Emergency Medicine. “It was a mutually beneficial undertaking. Not only was I able to contribute my knowledge and skills to help the WHO with this report, but I learned more about global health and the impact eHealth has had on developed and developing countries.”
