This paper starts by discussing the general value of teams and the concept of team building in healthcare organizations. It then discusses the use of virtual teams (via remote connections) in healthcare. It is argued that virtual teams are beneficial and they relate to the growing trend of "telemedicine." However, virtual teams also result in certain challenges (such as misunderstandings in communication and team members feeling isolated from one another). Some techniques are suggested for overcoming these types of problems. KEYWORDS: teamwork virtual teams healthcare medicine telemedicine. APA Style. 12 pages, 24 footnotes, 9 bibliographic sources. 2,604 words.
