dc.description.abstract In most countries public health is stepping towards an economic crisis. Extensive competition thus challenges healthcare organizations to redesign their business. E-collaborative telemedicine has the potential to offer new distribution channels to healthcare services. At present, there are several applications of collaborative telemedicine already in the market. However, most of the previous work has focused on either synchronous (all the physicians interact simultaneously) or asynchronous (non-simultaneous interaction) collaborative communication, and designed only for intra-hospital communication through LANs. The challenge now is to extend these systems on a national or continental Health Care System, which includes not only a few big hospitals but also several regional and local ones. The main contribution of this work is in building the system for teleconsultation through synchronous and asynchronous collaborative communication. The system is a Java client/server combination, which can be used for teleconsultation over the Internet or local networks. The system has been designed with structure and technologies that make it platform-independent and user-friendly. Finally, it should be pointed out from the prototype implementation that the reduction of the consultation time and the patient waiting time for operation gives immediate feedback of the augmented quality of healthcare service. en_US
