As the ubiquity and growing dependability of online communication grows, telemedicine has proven to be a boon for patients, especially those in rural areas where the number of physicians is dwindling. And, as discoveries in the lab have been leading to promising medical treatments, the supply of patients hasn’t been able to meet the demand for growing numbers of clinical trials. Often, many patients are unable to travel for long periods to enroll in such trials. Telemedicine, along with other technological advances such as wearable biometric measurement systems, may play an important role in filling trials.
