Abstract

Letters To actually revolutionize health care with e-health inter- media viewer (.wmv) files when viewed on a personal com- ventions, we can learn from the pharmaceutical industry, puter (PC) with Microsoft Windows and Internet Explorer. Re- where viable products emerge after numerous cycles of trial cent statistics show that Windows is the operating system on and error.

During the course of the studying the potential benefits in groups with easier chances study (2010-2011), PCs outsold Macs by a ratio of 20:1.
