What is Telemedicine?
Telemedicine is the remote treatment of patients by medical professionals through the use of telecommunication tools such as smartphones, and computers.
Predicted to be worth more than $40 billion by the end of 2020, the convenient and efficient nature of telemedicine makes it a profitable and worthwhile venture for healthcare professionals to create patient engagement and provide value-based care.
Telemedicine Software Features and Benefits for Physicians:
Telemedicine software makes it easier for patients to access healthcare and improves patient-provider communication while reducing administrative costs for the provider. Patients can quickly schedule remote consultations for urgent or diagnostic needs.
Patients in underserved or rural areas can receive expert diagnosis and treatment from specialty medical centers, it also delivers remote in-home monitoring for senior wellness and preventative care. It even supports “real-time” treatment by first responders using wireless devices.

Making the case for Medical Providers to Continue Practicing Virtually
The COVID-19 World Pandemic will come to pass in the future. However the continued need to assess patients remotely will remain. When this pandemic resolves as a contagious virus, the psychological impact will remain. For some patients they will get over the presumptive apprehension of gatherings both large and small as our “Social Distancing” boundaries will begin shrink. People will again gather in groups. These groups could be attendance at sporting events, musical performances, social gatherings and trade shows or business conferences. To identify a few, however, what about the people that will be apprehensive of joining or attending such events.
Going forwards, some of these patients may not want to sit idle in a clinic waiting room or hospital lobby. The lingering effect of taught and enforced social distancing will last. Some folks will jump right back in, however a portion of the population may take months, years or even a lifetime to recover psychologically from this pandemic and the awareness it has brought.
The pivot to virtual visits has been made. Embrace the technology of Telemedicine and keep it as a service offering to the many patients that will require distancing for their own comfort levels.
Telemedicine will never remove the need for personal physical attention and medical care / treatment. The opposite effect of social distancing will also come to play. The people that are feeling lonely and isolated due to Quarantine and mandatory separation from other people. There will become a need for balance between personal and virtual visits.
Another Pandemic is in the future, history dictates this fact. We do not know when, origin or severity but staying prepared is prudent for certain. Each and every year we face a Flu and Cold Season all over the globe. Patients will look to virtual visits (Telehealth) during their time of illnesses going forward.
Telemedicine software is still finding its way into the medical services industry. Like all technology, the ease of use and access will become more seamless.
