GP: General Practitioner;11/26/2004, p57
The article informs that now general practitioners (GP) can access their clinical systems remotely over a broadband link. For the last 10 years many of GPs have been struggling with slow modem links to access GPs clinical systems from home. Until recently, the answer would have been no, but now HealthVPN, a solution recently marketed by Cable & Wireless offers this possibility. Gone are the days of slow modem links, to be replaced by secure access at speeds comparable to using your system in the surgery.
