Abstract

Telehealth-embedded knowledge packets in conjuction with point-of-care testing strategically placed in small-world networks for regional health care delivery can provide multilingual education and intellectual connectivity at levels of sophistication appropriate for the practice of modern evidence-based medicine worldwide. In addition, appropriate demographic and topographic integration can provide efficient critical, emergency, and disaster care and thereby improve public health preparedness, especially in underserved low-resource settings most in need of help.
