Lopez, A. (2014). Treatment of Ebola in the Digital Age. Arizona Telemedicine Program.
The author presents strategies for preventing Ebola disease transmission through the use of telemedicine. Specifically, she discusses a national Ebola hotline to triage at-risk cases; using Bluetooth digital monitoring for high-risk suspect cases without symptoms; video enabled ambulance transfers; and an electronic ICU set up that minimizes exposure of live caregivers. Similar strategies could be applied to the management of other emerging infectious disease outbreaks.
