Virtual assistance is confirmed as an effective tool in monitoring HIV patients

The Hospital Clínic of Barcelona presented today the results of the telemedicine program “Hospital VIHrtual”, coordinated by Dr. Felipe Garcia and Dr. Agata León, from the Hospital Clínic Service of Infectious Diseases directed by Dr. Josep M ª Gatell. The tool has been created by a team from the Universidad Politécnica de Madrid, led by Prof. Enrique J. Gómez and César Cáceres. Through a direct connection via a webcam, Dr. Garcia showed a virtual consultation and explained the benefits of the project, which does not replace the classic face to face visits but complements and enhances them.
