Telemedicine

 

What is Telemedicine?

Telemedicine or Virtual medicine may be defined as a medical service, which involves the provision of healthcare via electronic communication to improve a patient's health status. Applications of this service date back four decades. However, the potential clinical applications have surfaced recently, with healthcare reform emphasis on efficient, cost-effective, value-based care. The use of telemedicine is spreading rapidly and is now starting to be integrated into healthcare systems, hospitals, long term facilities, home health care, private physician offices, as well as consumers' home and workplace.

 

Why Telemedicine?
Long waiting times and the tremendous difficulty experienced by health systems, in recruiting neurologists, are reflective of the growing shortage of neurologists and Sleep, Specialists.
