Free Skype 'much better' than Labor's $7.2m telehealth grant

Interesting article on how Skype might be more usable than custom video conferencing software for remote doctors.

Of course, it only provides part of the story, but it is often the case that commercial off the shelf software can be far more cost effective than custom installations that offer 5% more for a much greater cost.

I have to say that I find Skype video works as well as Microsoft Communicator, albeit without Active Directory integration (which is required for enterprises). I'd say a GP doesn't need that though.
