The Swedish office solutions group, Proffice Care, together with Dr Ola Landgren from the Karolinska hospital in Solna, has developed a remote diagnosis system accessible via a palm-top computer. The product can diagnose some 300 conditions within the fields of acute medicine, internal medicine, surgery, orthopaedics and gynaecology. Another 300-500 will be added in the spring. The information is continually updated via the internet and is compiled from books, studies and treatment manuals kept by university hospitals. The system also allows for communication between doctors.
