  • Increased patient comfort by reducing shifts.
  • Diagnosis fast to transfer the patient in the center of excellence more appropriate.
  • Access to the centers of excellence (cardiology, gynecology, …) from anywhere.
  • collaborative work between experts through the sharing of clinical data.
  • Tele-education.
  • Ultrasound can be helpful in areas that are not highly developed.
  • Reduce the cost of diagnosis.
