The Convenience of Telemedicine

Posted by Chessie Skates on Dec 10, 2013 10:26:00 AM

 

Patients who imagine getting high-tech medical attention without leaving the house, may be pleasantly surprised to learn about telemedicine.

Doctors can provide preventative, routine and emergency healthcare telemedicine services, also called telehealth. These doctors are often able to help patients even when they are away on travel.  Patients don't have to see an unfamiliar doctor whom they don’t have a relationship with and can get on with their business after their video chat ends.

Telemedicine is not just beginning; in fact, it started about 40 years ago. However, with today's modern technology, the possibility of what telemedicine can do is unbelievable. Anyone with a blood pressure cuff, stethoscope and other equipment in addition to their computer, is a potentially eligible candidate for telemedicine. With a simple video chat, doctors are able to give guidance for patients who don't want any further disruption from their day.

Some of the patients who can benefit most from telehealth services are those who want to monitor a chronic health illness, such as lupus, arthritis, type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, and many other conditions. As an additional service, telemedicine can be a great help to homebound patients or for seniors. Home telehealth can monitor seniors’ physiologic parameters and symptoms, as well as educate them about their conditions. Safety monitoring includes medication-management products, wander-management systems, fall-management devices, assist-call devices, smart-home systems and mobility assistance devices. These technologies can enhance the ability of providers to provide timely intervention before acute care worsens.
