TeleconferencingDealing with illness & the health care system is rarely easy. New technologies can help people to more easily manage their care. Due to shake ups in insurance and an aging population, healthcare providers are utilizing new technologies to reduce costs and provide more efficient access to medical services, care, & information. Teleconferencing is one such technology that is used to improve care and patient outcomes.

Telehealth Technology Provides Access to Healthcare

Doctors may wish to care for people who do not have access to more metropolitan & research oriented institutions & facilities.  Individuals in rural areas deserve the same care that people in more densely populated areas take for granted. Skilled nursing facilities, senior housing, and nursing homes often serve patients who need more assistance or expertise than is currently available to them.

Healthcare Kiosks for Telemedicine

Telemedicine” is defined as a virtual health care visit that is conducted remotely over telephony and video conferencing. Healthcare kiosks are increasingly being outfitted with telemedicine capabilities to give patients easy access to treatment from remote locations.

The benefits of telemedicine healthcare kiosks are numerous as they reduce the need for in-person doctor visits, which can lower healthcare costs for patients, out office visit wait times, and allow doctors to be more efficient in the time spent diagnosing and treating patients.

1.  Store-and-Forward

Collect diagnostic data like x-rays and lab work at one location and forward to a specialist at another location. This allows a talented specialist to cover a much wider area and patients in remote areas to have access to specialists elsewhere.

2.  Remote Patient Monitoring

Track vital signs and other health data while the patient is at home. This is particularly beneficial to patients recovering from surgery.

3. Real-Time
Live one-on-one interaction with health care professionals.

Benefits of Telemedicine

1. Cost Savings

Average costs for telemedicine procedures are 19 percent lower and come with equal or better health outcomes than the equivalent in-person treatments.

Emergency room transfers could be reduced by 850,000 per year, resulting in $537 million per year in savings.

Telemedicine healthcare for inmates at correctional facilities can result in $218 million in savings due to reductions in transportation of inmates to off-site health care visits.

With telemedicine kiosks, nursing homes could reduce the number of transfers between their facilities to off-site medical facilities by 7.26 million for an annual cost savings of $806 million dollars.

2.  Provide Better Healthcare to Remote Areas

A study published in 2012 of diabetic patients in Cameroon, South Africa, Thailand, and Uganda showed improvements in symptom management for patients using Telemedicine.

3. Telemedicine Treatment ls Approved by Both Doctors and Patients

A 2001 study by the British Journal of General Practice showed that 97% of visits conducted via Telemedicine in the area of rheumatology were given positive reviews by both patients and doctors.

What Can Telemedicine Treat?

Mayo Clinic has been a leader in the field of stroke telemedicine, which uses audiovisual technology to connect patients in rural areas with stroke specialists at hub hospitals. Starting at Mayo Clinic in Phoenix, Ariz., stroke telemedicine subsequently expanded to Mayo’s campus in Jacksonville, Fla. Now, Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minn., is a stroke telemedicine hub serving 18 hospitals in the Mayo Clinic Health System in Minnesota and Wisconsin.

“We’re expanding the Mayo Clinic Model of Care for stroke telemedicine to the Upper Midwest. The goal is to bring Mayo Clinic stroke expertise to each of the sites in our health system, through collaboration with physicians and other providers at those sites, and then expand later this year to non-Mayo sites as well,” says Robert D. Brown Jr., M.D., a neurologist at Mayo in Minnesota.
