The pandemic has a great impact on our people's livelihood, economy and some social activities. The post-epidemic era has gradually become the norm under the circumstances that conventional medical treatment has been impacted and hindered. The application and development of remote mode has injected fresh blood into the medical industry.
Telemedicine is a technology used to remotely monitor the health status of patients and control their treatment, so it is necessary to use telecommunication solutions and equipment that allow the exchange of medical information. Telemedicine also includes RPM devices for reading the vital signs of patients and sending them to healthcare professionals. Today, telemedicine has been widely practiced. By 2020, the telemedicine market will be valued at US $60 billion and grow to US $72.7 billion in 2021. What are the benefits of telemedicine for patients, medical institutions and society?
For patients: Remote consultation has shortened the distance between people and between patients and doctors. It enables doctors to make comprehensive and careful thinking, summary and analysis of the patient's condition without the patient's presence, so as to make correct diagnosis and formulate scientific and appropriate treatment plan, which not only improves the accuracy of diagnosis, but also saves the patient's time to see a doctor, thus relieving the patient of long-distance travel, registration and queuing.
With the development of science and technology and the progress of communication tools, telemedicine will gradually replace the traditional medical treatment method that patients must visit in person, so that patients can get the diagnosis and treatment of relevant doctors at home without leaving home, which saves money, labor and time. Through remote treatment, doctors’ diagnosis opinions can be obtained in a very short time, which is conducive to the receiving hospital and patients to grasp the best time for diagnosis and treatment.
For the society: Telemedicine helps alleviate the contradiction between the growing medical needs of the grass-roots people and the huge contrast between the urban and rural medical resource structure. It plays a positive role in optimizing the medical and health service system, making full use of the medical and health resources of the whole society, and facilitating the people in remote areas to seek medical advice. The construction of telemedicine is an important part of the hospital informatization construction, and plays a promoting role in the informatization construction of the whole industry.
For hospitals: Through the introduction of a large number of well-known expert resources, the popularity of the hospital can be rapidly improved in a short period of time to prevent the loss of patients. With the cooperation of experts, some new medical service projects can be carried out to improve the medical level of the hospital itself and bring good economic benefits. It brings a new concept of paperless and sheetless hospital, makes the preservation of hospital medical records gradually develop towards digitalization, internationalization and standardization, and improves the working efficiency of the hospital. The digital medical records promotes the quality of preservation and avoids many medical disputes caused by improper preservation or loss of data. It strengthens the contact between local doctors and medical experts, and can establish a good cooperative relationship with them, which is conducive to the development of the internal medicine research project of the hospital, and can receive the guidance of experts in real time.
