The demanding tasks of hospitals and physicians are supported by telemedicine solutions in modern hospitals. Across spatial and temporal distance, telemedicine solutions allow an exchange between doctors, patients and interdisciplinary expert teams.
Telemedicine is highly versatile. For example, vital functions of chronically ill patients can be measured via an ECG device at home and can be transmitted to the physician in charge. Thereby, telemedicine solutions promote a reliable mentoring, which gives patients a sense of security and hence minimises stress due to fewer clinic visits. In sparsely populated regions, telemedicine solutions enable a consultation of experts. The examination of patients is carried out on site, while a medical specialist is connected via video conferencing. In case of acute emergencies, telemedicine already goes into action in the ambulance vehicle. The patient’s condition is passed on to the clinic in order that the professionals can prepare for a necessary treatment. Because an enormous time saving and an optimised communication among medical specialist are obtained, telemedicine solutions can even save lives.
An acceptance among users is an important basis for the introduction of telemedicine solutions. If patients and physicians do not perceive telemedicine solutions as inexpedient but as technical aid, you will expect a high utilisation. Then modern telemedicine was worth your investment.
High encryption standards in telemedicine guarantee a secure communication of sensitive patient data. Beyond this, telemedicine solutions are characterised by an intuitive operation.
Apart from telemedicine, AV technology like audio video systems are regularly used in hospitals and in doctor’s surgeries, for example as a visitor guidance system in form of digital signage or HD television via IP (IPTV) for bedside entertainment programmes.
GMS cooperate with international manufacturers of video conferencing systems as well as AV technology, and offer elaborated telemedicine solutions for an innovative health care system.
