[Assessment of telemedicine in the Northern Ostrobothnia hospital district]
The use of telemedicine applications seems to be a growing trend internationally, despite lack of clear scientific evidence on its effectiveness and cost-effectiveness. Most published reports, until now, have been based on limited pilot projects or observations.
Finnish Office for Health Care Technology Assessment (FinOHTA) together with Northern Ostrobothnia Hospital District organised a project to assess the effectiveness and cost-effectiveness of telemedicine, focusing on applications in radiology, psychiatry, surgery and ophthalmology. This report summarises the results of this Finnish project.
