La telemedicina rural surge en los años cincuenta con el programa Starphac en la Reservación Papago, Arizona; la Universidad Anáhuac la inició en 2002. En la Anáhuac este proyecto se desarrolla para proporcionar interconsultas de especialidad de manera virtual a población altamente marginada, creando campos clínicos de alta tecnología y fomentando el compromiso social. El programa inició en Guerrero y se complementó con videoconfe- rencias a población abierta, cursos a médicos generales, educación médica continua, actividades de promoción a la salud y plan de atención en desastres. De mayo de 2002 a fines de 2004 se habían otorgado 11,756 consultas generales y 2,420 consultas de especialidad Los diagnósticos más frecuentes en cirugía fueron enfermedad ácido péptica, colecistitis, pie diabético e insuficiencia venosa superficial. El programa de telemedicina ha permitido llevar consulta de alta especialidad, con gran productividad, rendimiento, menor tiempo de espera y costo-beneficio impactante, además de alta calidad humana. Los médicos pasantes realizan su servicio social con calidez, asesoría permanente y programa de educación médica continua.

Palabras clave: telemedicina, atención médica vía virtual, videoconferencias.
