[Author's original abstract]

Telemedicine has been widely adopted in developed countries to reach all its citizens irrespective of their location. However, developing countries have mainly used it for education purposes or disaster relief. Since developing countries already suffer inadequate healthcare provision, it is ideal to implement telemedicine practices for clinical uses rather than education use. However, lack of funding to sustain telemedicine projects has hindered its implementation. Recent studies suggest that co-innovation can enable organisations to pool resources and share high costs involved in healthcare technological innovations. This research will examine how co-innovation can enable the implementation of telemedicine in developing countries.
