Now, we are in the second surge of the COVID-19 virus. From the provider's perspective, this means a 50 to 175 times increase in the number of telehealth monitoring visits compared to the level before COVID-19. As an industry known for its backward digital transformation, the healthcare industry has no choice but to accept and apply new communication and collaboration technologies to achieve agility and responsiveness during the unpredictable global pandemic. Due to the digital progress of COVID-19 across telemedicine, asynchronous care, and remote patient monitoring, health care achievements will be improved.
Telemedicine monitoring is a telemedicine service that can continuously monitor the condition of patients and the performance of preventive and control examinations outside medical facilities. This form of care is possible through the use of RPM device that measure vital signs. The results are transmitted to a telemedicine center where automatic analysis is performed. If any abnormality is detected, the medical staff will contact the patient and call an ambulance in case of emergency.
As COVID-19 cases continue to rise, maintaining close communication with your patients and focusing on continuous care has never been more challenging. The key to meeting patients' needs today is to cultivate relationships by communicating with them at the right time, in the right place, and in the right way.
