Studies/Études : Is telemonitoring an option against shortage of physicians in rural regions?

Source: BMC Health Services Research. "General practitioners (GP) in rural areas of Germany are struggling to find successors for their private practices. Telemonitoring at home offers an option to support remaining GPs and specialists in ambulatory care."

"We assessed the knowledge and attitude towards telemedicine in the population of North Rhine-Westphalia (NRW), Germany, in a population-based telephone survey."
