Innovating medicine through remote patient monitoring.
Telemedicine refers to the process of remotely caring for patients where both the doctor and patient are not physically present. Modern technology has allowed doctors to consult patients using videoconferencing devices that are HIPAA Compliant.
To people (modern society) who do practically everything on their computer or on their mobile devices, the opportunity to get a quick appointment with their doctor wherever they are is the trend forward. These people would eventually love it. While for the ones getting this technology new would be amazed to see how easily they can visit your doctor.
Practitioners are able to frequently follow up with their patients, compared with traditional appointments. Whenever patients sense something wrong, they are able to contact their doctors, this will reduce false urgent care visits and even save a life before things go bad.
Telemedicine's most noticeable benefits are nothing but adding convenience to patients and providers alike. Convenience in terms of time spent in transportation for doctors or patients, waiting long hours outside the doctor's waiting room, wasting time when patients missed the appointment, patient too sick too even leave their home. WMO recommends telemedicine solution that can fit in with your current workflow to optimize the convenience effect.
Its obvious advantage of telemedicine is to allow providers and physicians to expand their scope beyond their premises to the corner of the world where connectivity permits. This helps providers particularly to increase their reach for those located in a less dense area. It also improves healthcare quality as one specialty can be transported to wherever it is in high demand, no matter how far it is.
