In this article, we look at some of the benefits that hospitals and other healthcare organizations can enjoy by using Telehealth technology.
The many uses of Telehealth Technology on Healthcare Institutes and Organizations
Access to healthcare, for many American even today, is extremely challenging. Factors like transportation, distance to a nearby clinic etc. all play an important role in being hurdles for the proper access of healthcare. This can be even more inconvenient in cases of senior citizens or people with disabilities.
These individuals can barely make it to a clinic or hospital for proper care. However, with the help of telehealth technology, doctors and other practitioners can still schedule appointment and consult them live via a videoconferencing or live video tool. So, these individuals, who would normally have never become a part of client base, can now become your most valuable clients, thanks to Telehealth.
The same rationale applies to people who don’t have access to healthcare due to them residing in rural or remote regions. They too can be catered to with the help of telehealth technology.
It is widely estimated that most people prefer telehealth over physical visits. According to a study done by American Well, it was found that over 65 percent of patients want to see their doctors over video.
The rendering of virtual visits, mHealth apps, and remote patient monitoring solutions, a healthcare organization can attract positive media attention. Positive media attention, then eventually leads to new clients.
Telehealth technology like RPM solutions can help keep tabs on patients who are considered high-risk. With the help of real-time patient data being provided by this technology, care teams can act immediately before the patient’s condition worsens.
Hospitals are always seeking reduced readmission rates, more satisfied customers and avoiding penalties for subpar healthcare. A robust telehealth technology can help you accomplish that.
Hospitals and Healthcare institutes are busy places. As such doctors and nurses have a lot on their plate, and are constantly on their toes. Telehealth, by imbuing efficiency into the overall functioning of a hospital helps in boosting the productivity of their staff.
Telehealth helps patients schedule their own appointments, which means this burden is alleviated from the shoulders of the staff. Mobile communication also enables staff to collaborate effectively with each other. With so many mundane tasks taken care of, the staff can focus better on their patients.
The science of medicine undergoes perpetual evolution. As such, people who practice medicine need to be constantly educated and informed of the developments in the world of healthcare. However, this can be very expensive. Some training programs charge exorbitantly high registration fees.
Thankfully, video conferencing technology today can help physicians attend training sessions remotely from the comfort of their own abode, without spending a ton of money. Virtual reality training solutions are also becoming very popular nowadays. They allow physicians to observe recorded surgeries from multiple angles and undergo simulation that offer hands-on experience to learn new techniques and procedures.
