What is Telemedicine?
Telemedicine is the use of telecommunications technology to evaluate, diagnose, and treat patients remotely.
Healthcare professionals use telemedicine to see patients or consult with other doctors.
How does Telemedicine work?
Through Telemedicine, doctors and patients connect over a video call, phone call, or text messages using
mobile phones, tablets, and desktop computers.
Where is Telemedicine used?
Today, Telemedicine is used to provide education, consultation, and therapy in various areas of medical
care, including dermatology, behavioral health, standard clinical care, and more.
What are the benefits of Telemedicine?
There are numerous benefits of Telemedicine. It offers convenience to both healthcare providers and patients
to connect at their convenient location. Patients don’t have to commute and spend time in the waiting room.
For doctors, it speeds the delivery of care and optimizes cost of care. In many cases, the consultation can
be provided over text messages or a quick call, rather than seeing patients in person. Also, doctors can
connect and consult with their peers in real-time and provide better care to their patients.
What do patients need for telemedicine?
Telemedicine requires basic setup and technology. Patients need a computer/mobile device, a secure internet
connection, and a video platform. There are also telemedicine applications that offer built-in video,
appointments, reminders, and payment capabilities that make telemedicine even easier.
