Access to medical care is sometimes very difficult to be reached from people living in rural and underserved areas. That problem is very well known in rural areas in Brazil and Colombia. Citizens have no access to health care. They have to travel hundred of kilometres to receive a medical diagnosis. In this paper we will propose a medical network based on state-of-the-art medical applications that address the problems of providing health care from a distance. Additionally, we are going to show preliminarily results of the first year of the system deployment and utilization in undeserved regions in Brazil and Colombia.
