With advancing technology, medical problems are also advancing which call for services of a health care provider and medical staff beyond traditional means. Many rare disorders, complications and emergency case studies may be learn about today. Unfortunately all of the times, the individual cannot be helped anymore. It is because such situations demand for expert knowledge and good timing of the procedure that’s not obtainable in all areas of the world. Sometimes even basic medical examinations, diagnosis, consultation and treatments aren’t offered to those in remote locations. Occasionally, the valuable time a patient has is eaten up by technical difficulties of traditional telehealth way of clinical cameras, phone and internet connections.
A New Paradigm
The expertise is scarce. The need is manageable but scattered. Telehealth solutions up to now have covered activities which range from over-the-phone emotional pet support consultations and advice to supervising a surgery performed by an automatic arm. But there have the technical difficulties and the shortcomings of the technology used. Can a specialist a lot of miles away assess a stroke? Can the telecons be used for patient records? Can a bed-ridden patient be saved from the worries of moving to an acute-care facility for a test? In place of bringing the physician to the individual or the individual to the facility, can the situation or procedure only be taken to the specialist?
The answer is surprisingly yes. For once there exists a simpler way out. When you present mobility to tasks or problems, they can be easily taken care of. On earth of medicine, what this means is a blessing from technology. The unit that replaces the individual camera in mobile collaboration enables extreme clarity of visual details, freezing and capturing of frames, a wireless easy-to-handle device with a two-way telestration, recording and annotation ability. The two-way is achievable due to the expert application on the consulting end of the communication.
Apart from being able to consult across remote locations saving the doctors and medical staff an extended trip for just one patient and exorbitant expenses for the individual, the device can be used for real-time guiding of nursing staff to deal with patients who cannot be moved, who are in prison or other institutions. Even where regular internet isn’t available, people in need may be helped using satellite communication affordably. Procedures such as for example biopsies and surgeries may be monitored by experienced doctors and pathologists using mobile video conferencing. Good voice quality, ability to incorporate another guest to the session, recording the session for future reference and for patient records, and conducting a differential diagnosis become possible. Medical communities too can collaborate using this to enhance their collective knowledge base and awareness.
The future of telehealth solutions looks optimistic which certainly changes everything for good.
