Did you know, the number of patient visits during the pandemic can disrupt hospital management? Therefore, telemedicine can be the solution. With the help of Medical Equipment Planning and the use of telemedicine, you can expand the range of services provided, so that patients who are afraid to seek treatment directly at the hospital can still consult a doctor remotely.
Telemedicine capabilities that can connect patients with better access to health services can be a better solution for equitable distribution of health services and patient care. So, how does telemedicine help hospitals during a pandemic? Here is the full explanation!
Know the Advantages of Telemedicine
To find out more about the use of telemedicine in your health care practice, you need to know in advance what are the advantages that are offered by the telemedicine system and cannot be offered by conventional practice. Some of them such as:
Facilitate the distribution of information, especially information related to health among health workers, so that the quality of patient care remains well standardized. In addition, patients can also use it to find out how to prevent and treat a disease by consulting directly with a doctor remotely.
Speeding up the referral process, which is often a problem for hospitals. By keeping the right equipment in your hospitals with the help of Health Care Equipment Planners, the referral process can be done quickly and efficiently.
More accurate chronic disease monitoring, even if done remotely, monitoring via tele medical applications can be done accurately thanks to technology that allows remote checking. Examples such as diabetes, cancer, hypertension, and many more.
Expanding the range of services, with telemedicine you can also serve patients from various regions, so that the range of services can be wider than just using conventional doctor consultations.
Telemedical Skills in Health Services
Another thing that is still a concern for hospital management and health workers is the extent to which telemedicine is capable of serving the needs of patients. At least, there are 3 main functions or uses of telemedicine in helping health workers, namely:
- Interactive communication, with services such as consultation and examination by health workers in real time.
- A ‘save-and-forward’ function, where patient’s medical data will be collected and transmitted to other medical personnel for a more efficient examination.
- Remote monitoring, which can be useful for monitoring chronic diseases at a more affordable cost and faster time.
You need to know, all of the above functions can be available independently for each telemedicine system, it can also be a combination of each function in the same system. So, make sure that the application or telemedicine system you choose already has some of these functions. That way, you can use it more optimally to restore lost cash flow due to the pandemic.
