The following work gives an overview of telemedical consultation in emergencies based on a research project. A telemedical centre located at a university hospital offers medical expertise for rural islands independent from place, time and urgency. Medical employees on the islands were relieved in matters of responsibilities and received medical support whenever it is necessary. Results from the projects mid-term evaluation compare the innovative concept with the conventional approach.
