Abstract

International health informaticians acknowledge the critical importance of education and training to the successful implementation of information technology in the health-care setting. As access to the Internet grows, so does the richness of resources the Internet can supply. With the changes in health care brought by communication, telematics will become the successor to informatics. The authors present the philosophy of telematics training and propose a short training course designed to help health professionals in developing nations take advantage of telematics, providing conceptual understanding and hands-on training.
