This study is a contribution to the ongoing debate on the application of informatics in medicine. It attempts to outline a theoretical framework supported by a software application of a telemedicine management system. The proposed model is based on a detailed benchmarking of Telecom environments, hardware environments, and content management systems. This approach, which uses open source technologies, helps to create an interface with two entities: web and medical care USB. In sum, for the proposed telemedicine model to be successful, health professionals, telecom operators and research medical informatics laboratories must play an active role in the conception and implementation of telemedicine applications.
