The estimate that professionals, medical centers, and mutual medical societies, before the current health crisis, were able to adapt their platforms and staff to the new dynamics of telemedicine: around 70% of scheduled medical visits could be carried out by telematics. The physical visit is considered unnecessary.
Professionals such as family doctors or internists and specialties such as psychiatry or psychology make greater use of telemedicine. According to forecasts from various specialist consultants, the telemedicine industry was expected to grow by an average of 27% in the United States alone over the next five years, before the crisis of the current coronavirus broke out.
What is telemedicine?
Telemedicine is the use of information technologies to diagnose, monitor, and treat patients remotely. In detail, telemedicine is the provision of health services, where distance is a critical factor, by health professionals through the use of information and communication technologies (ICTs) for the exchange of valid information for the diagnosis, treatment, disease prevention, research, evaluation and continuing training of health professionals.
Telemedicine seeks a patient’s health by allowing interactive communication in real-time between the patient and the doctor or healthcare professional at a distance. This electronic communication involves the use of interactive telecommunications equipment that includes at least audio and video equipment.
