Healthcare Technology Innovation - Telemedicine
Looking at advances in technology, one can see that the internet and electronic devices have revolutionized the way we live, communicate, learn, drive and even the way we work. Technology is also revolutionizing healthcare.
Telehealth is a broad range of remotely provided health care services that are both clinical and non-clinical. It is the larger body of which telemedicine is a part. Telemedicine is the provision of remote healthcare services that are strictly clinical and occur either between clinician and clinician or between clinician and patients. The clinical services within telemedicine include consultations, diagnoses, and monitoring of patients online. It also includes the transmission of healthcare documents, images and patient data using the internet. These clinical services are included in telehealth, which also includes remote healthcare provider training, continuous medical education and administrative meetings.
Telemedicine has changed the way healthcare is given. It allows people who are too old to travel or people who need regular medical attention like those suffering from chronic diseases, and people living in remote areas to have access to healthcare without having to go into the hospital or the doctor’s office. As long as a person has access to the internet, doctor visits can be scheduled online and can be conducted through teleconferencing. It is cheaper for patients because it saves them transport costs to the medical center. If they are students then they do not have to miss their classes because of the doctor’s appointment. It is convenient particularly for the family members who do not have to leave work in order to transport loved ones to a primary care. Hospitalized patients can even stay at home where family and friends can visit while a specialist remotely supervises the home care.
Telemedicine has made healthcare cheaper in many ways. Now diagnostic images can be conveyed by email to more affordable specialists in other countries who can give their diagnosis back by email, enabling the care givers to give treatment. That means doctors in Ireland can work during the night with radiologists in India and get diagnoses during the night by email. They do not have to wait for daytime when they have critical and urgent cases.
Through telemedicine care givers monitor their patients continuously and they quickly respond to any anomalies, managing the problem before it gets worse, that way avoiding the need for hospitalization. Telemedicine definitely keeps patients healthy and keeps them away from hospital.
At the center of telemedicine are a wide range of devices that patients can wear or use for continuous health monitoring. So vital signs like blood sugar levels, blood pressure, heart rate, weight, temperature and others can be read at the right time and transmitted to healthcare professionals online. That means if any vital signs indicate there is a problem, the caregivers can flag that and intervene without the need for a patient to go to the hospital or the doctor’s rooms.
