Korolenko VV and Stepanenko VI

Two major problems of the contemporary health services of every country are necessary to be decided are low quality of health care and unequal access to health services. One way to solve this problem is to develop such contemporary direction as telemedicine. Telemedicine is a method of providing health care services, where distance is a critical factor. Services by representative of all medical specialties using information and communications technology after receiving information required for diagnosis, treatment and prevention of disease. In teledermatology telecommunications technology are used to share medical information (for skin diseases and skin tumors) at a distance using audio, video and data transmission. Many projects of teledermatology are implemented throughout the world. One promising project is dedicated to the early detection of skin cancers in New Zealand. Experience of some countries, including Ukraine and Malta, shows that methods of telemedicine may be promising in the project “Euromelanoma.” Teledermatology is a very promising branch of medicine. Figuratively speaking, we are scratching the surface only at present. Certainly, its further development will improve the quality and accessibility of health care, especially in remote from the centers of the regions, throughout the world.
