AMD's Telemedicine Equipment Allows for Patient Care in Remote Areas in Costa Rica Doña María had several months with an anemia that she could not manage to overcome. Only a specialist could find what was wrong, and thanks to the technology she didn't have to wait long. Dona Maria is one of the 10,000 patients a year who consult via telemedicine. Telemedicine technology came to Costa Rica 15 years ago, but only recently has the equipment been of such high quality and definition that is allows a more efficient and accurate diagnosis.

Communities in rural Canada have long struggled to retain family physicians. Attracting specialist physicians to these areas has been even harder. But in the past year, this troubling trend has begun to change for the better in rural British Columbia with the help of a new telemedicine company, Livecare, and the latest telemedicine technology from AMD Global Telemedicine.
