iCons in Medicine

iCons in Medicine is a telemedicine program that uses the Internet to connect health care providers in remote and medically underserved areas with a network of committed volunteer specialty physicians who act as consultants on difficult cases. It expands treatment options for patients who otherwise would not have access to specialty care.

The collaboration is made possible by a special computer software and social networking website. The software allows health care providers in remote areas to upload a case consultation form. Cases are then routed to all available Volunteer physicians according to specialty. These Volunteers use the website's built-in communication tools to respond with clinical advice, from the convenience of their home or office.

The iCons program will debut this year with a focus on helping physicians in IRAQ . We are inviting you to join the IMSA Chapter in providing consultation to our colleagues in the IRAQ. Each volunteer is expected to provide a minimum of 3 consultations per year.
