Telemedicine solutions in modern hospitals support the demanding tasks of hospitals and physicians. Across the spatial and temporal distance, telemedicine solutions allow an exchange between doctors, patients, and interdisciplinary expert teams.
Telemedicine is highly versatile. For example, chronically ill patients’ vital functions can be measured via an ECG device at home and can be transmitted to the physician in charge. Thereby, telemedicine solutions promote reliable mentoring, which gives patients a sense of security and hence minimizes stress due to fewer clinic visits. In sparsely populated regions, telemedicine solutions enable the consultation of experts. The examination of patients is carried out on-site, while a medical specialist is connected via video conferencing. In the case of acute emergencies, telemedicine already goes into action in the ambulance vehicle. The patient’s condition is passed on to the clinic so that the professionals can prepare for the necessary treatment. Because enormous time savings and optimized communication among medical specialists are obtained, telemedicine solutions can save lives.
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, they will expect a high utilization. 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 characterized by an intuitive operation.
Apart from telemedicine, AV technology like audio-video systems is regularly used in hospitals and in doctor’s surgeries, such as a visitor guidance system in the form of digital signage or HD television via IP (IPTV) for bedside entertainment programs.
