Coronavirus Exposure Frameworks: Minimising the risk to healthcare workers , CDC and WHO advises that the best way to prevent coronavirus infection is to avoid the spread. Our Telehealth systems allow people to stay in self-quarantine and seek diagnosis through tools such as video conferencing, remote monitoring, wearable & sensors safety, tele-education.
Telehealth reduces the spread of infection to others, including doctors and staff who are at grave risk because they may be exposed to higher doses of the virus in a crowded healthcare facility. Being able to connect and diagnose remotely helps to keep people free from communicable germs, and ultimately helps more patients.
Healthcare Professionals to accommodate more patients: In a widespread coronavirus outbreak, it is a serious concern for doctors and staff to accommodate patients who need to get them checked. Providers even can’t turn their back in the time of crisis that demands immediate attention.
Telehealth offers an effective on-demand solution, where doctors can conduct diagnosis on video conferencing at any available time. The diagnosis may take 10 to 15 minutes, followed by a call to prescription and follow-up for those already under their care. Tele-monitoring helps doctors to accommodate more patients who are seriously virus affected looking for guidance and other urgent care screenings.
Telehealth encounters the latest tech: Healthcare technology is always on its balance to meet modern demands. Modern telehealth services give better protection, deliver care and accommodate more patients remotely. Telehealth solutions always get an update to incorporate interoperability features, telecommunication technology, reimbursement rates, and patient outcomes.
