Telemedicine lies far beyond Internet itself and suffers from lack of global technology standards and profuse applications, which would make it a household name like Google or Yahoo!. Herein lies the significance of the Semantic Web. A technology interface or enabler that can rapidly develop simple and efficient applications for telemedicine is urgently required. This is the area from which new innovations are likely to emerge within the next 2-3 years.

The Handbook of Research on Knowledge Management in Telemedicine: Advanced Ethics, Policy and Regulatory Applications covers a wide range of topics from early adopters of Telemedicine to the latest innovation and futuristic tele-robotic technologies.
