Health care services have mostly been provided on a telemedicine basis to, at least, 550 000 patients, and they have connected more than 650 health care institutions, mainly in deprived areas of the country. Unfortunately, none of these projects has been rigorously evaluated, and no recommendations can be made with a minimum degree of evidence for their support. The proposed methodology is suitable for similar studies about telemedicine evaluation in other developing
