Let's take a look at where technology could be going in the future and where telemedicine fits in.



What is Telecommuting?

Telecommuting is the act of working from home, making use of the Internet, over email, telephone, and VIDEO! However, Letting staff work at their own pace, out of the office, is a scary concept to a lot of Managers and Business owners. Let's take a look at the misconceptions, the 'how to's' and benefits of Telecommuting over Video.

The Misconceptions?

They are harder to reach than on-location workers. - Wrong, Video allows you to dial and talk face to face and share and collaborate on documents in real time. - That's easier than in the office!
They will work fewer hours! - They work longer hours as there isn't a hard stop.
They don't do as much work... - Yes they do, people notice if projects get ignored.

What do you need to telecommute?

It's really that simple. With Managed Video Conferencing systems you simply need to log onto your client, all of your contacts are easily available. You can join meetings, collaborate and record within a few simple clicks.
