How Telehealth Technology is Transforming Modern Healthcare
Most people are not even aware, but Telehealth technology has been around since the 1980’s. Yes! That’s how old the technology is. Since then Telehealth has grown to become a revolutionary tech that can convey medical information throughout the globe in real-time. Medical professionals can now provide services to individuals and areas that previously had no access to health care.
Now that the entire world is reeling in the face of an unexpected pandemic outbreak, Telehealth has become more important than ever. It has already proven its mettle in saving countless lives by making individuals abode by the golden rules of social distancing that our current situation demands.
In this article, we will be looking at the 5 ways in which Telehealth technology is transforming modern healthcare.
So without much further ado, let’s get started
Spreading Expertise in All Areas
Telehealth has graced rural areas with its presence. These areas have suffered a lot due to inadequate health care. Usually, these areas have their own community doctor to take care of an entire community. However, he might not have the expertise to deal with all kinds of medical conditions. Telehealth act as a convenient assisting tool in this regard.
Let’s say a community doctor is dealing with a patient with stroke, with very little expertise in the field. With the help of Telehealth, he can consult an expert over video calls and take better care of the patient suffering from a stroke.
Helping People with Limited Access to Care
A majority of the world we inhabit still lives in conditions of great suffering and lack the basic privilege of proper healthcare. Before telehealth, deaths and aggravated medical conditions were typical in rural and underdeveloped regions of our planet due to the absence of expert medical personnel. Thanks to telehealth, there is no excuse anymore for healthcare professionals to transmit care over the internet, which can lead to many lives being saved.
It is Inexpensive
With telehealth, patients are rewarded with the benefit of affordable healthcare. Telehealth technology like Fit bit and Apple watches are now relatively affordable and can provide great health benefits to users. Insurance companies along with Medicare and Medicaid are also now reimbursing the use of telehealth, which has made Telehealth more trustworthy amongst insured individuals.
With the current pandemic, telehealth is likely to be adopted by all forms of healthcare channels, making it even more popular than it was before. Remote home care will quickly replace long wait times at clinics. More telehealth treatment options will be reimbursed by our healthcare system.
