Prof. Chao mentioned as a major problem in the country, "the lack of mandatory training, ever since graduation, in Medicine in digital bioethics, telepropedutics, humanization using interactive means and care supported by technologies". He added: “the biggest danger of incorporating technology is not doing it in a solid and correct way. Telemedicine is not a tool, but a medical method that provides quality care in patient care".
