Integration of health science with updated information and technology has led to quicken effective health services, best of all is the far-reaching service availability. Quick and accurate diagnostics and immediate response for treatment guidelines from far-off specialists mean cheaper costs for patients and better access to quality health care. Sending ECG readings, ultrasound /radiology images and laboratory reports back and forth between remote service center and home base specialists become realistic benefit for those in remote or difficult accessie dangerous areas. Universal coverage may well become feasible sooner than later.
