Abstract:The use of interactive video communication in oncology is currently the most important telemedical application. By rapid knowledge transfer it provides the development of efficient and interdisciplinary coordinated treatment plans. Participation in an interdisciplinary video tumor conference can take place independent of location but requires basic technical equipment. Regardless of the technical solution adopted it must be ensured that all participants are always provided with the exact same images in the same quality. The compliance with data privacy, for example through data encryption must also be provided. In the future it is conceivable that telemedicine in oncology could progress from video tumor conferences to telemonitoring with the purpose of collecting the vital signs and the medical history of outpatients after or during therapy or to optimize individual psychooncological care.
