Telemedicine is revolutionizing healthcare, by allowing patients access to medical professionals and medical advice at any time in any location. At the same time this is allowing practices to increase revenue.
Telemedicine is the use of technology (primarily video conferencing) that enables remote healthcare. The medical professional will send an invite to the patient, and the patient can join from a computer or smartphone by following a link provided in the invite.
We live in an increasingly connected world, and telemedicine allows patients and doctors to connect more frequently. That means patients can ask more questions, doctors can provide more answers, which creates a stronger doctor patient relationship.
Telemedicine solutions also allows for multiple parties to join, like family in another state, or a specialist in a certain field. It also provides the ability to share out content such as test results or x-rays.
When looking to establish telemedicine solutions for patients it is important to ensure that the chosen solution complies with all HIPAA guidelines.
