  • What is Telemedicine?The delivery of health care services, where distance is a critical factor, by all health care professionals using information and communication technologies for the exchange of valid information for diagnosis, treatment and prevention of disease and injuries, research and evaluation, and for the continuing education of health care providers, all in the interests of advancing the health of individuals and their communities.Four elements are germane to telemedicine:Its purpose 1. to provide clinical support.2. It is intended to overcome geographical barriers, connecting users who are not in thesame physical location.3. It involves the use of various types of ICT.4. Its goal is to improve health outcomes.Tele is a Greek word meaning ``distance'' and Mederi is a Latin word meaning ``to heal''. Time magazine referred to telemedicine as ``healing by wire''. Although often considered ``futuristic'' and ``experimental'', the concept is becoming a reality. In practice, telemedicine simply delivers health care and the exchange of health care information across distances using telecommunications technology. It includes the transfer of basic patient information over computer networks (medical informatics), the transfer of images such as radiographs, computer tomography (CT) scans, magnetic resonance imaging (MRIs) pictures, ultrasound studies, pathology images, video images of endoscopic or other procedures, patient interviews and examinations, consultations with medical specialists and health care educational activities. The essence of telemedicine lies in transferring the expertise and not the patient ± the goal of telemedicine is to eliminate the unnecessary travelling of patients (and their escorts). One immediate benefit of telemedicine is to extend medical services to isolated, geographically dispersed and physically confined persons unable to reach a physician within reasonable time or distance. Indeed, its major promise for the future is to bring health services to people wherever it is not possible or feasible to bring people to health services.Other expressions similar to telemedicine are the terms "telehealth" and "eHealth", which are frequently used to denote broader definitions of remote healthcare not always involving active clinical treatments.Telehealth and eHealth are at times incorrectly interchanged with telemedicine. Like the terms "medicine" and "health care", telemedicine often refers only to the provision of clinical services while the term telehealth can refer to clinical and non-clinical services involving medical education, administration, and research.The term eHealth is often used, particularly in the U.K. and Europe, as an umbrella term that includes telehealth, electronic medical records, and other components of health information technology.
  • Telemedicine can be broken into three main categories: store-and-forward, remote monitoring and (real-time) interactive services.Store-and-forward telemedicine involves acquiring medical data (like medical images, biosignals etc.) and then transmitting this data to a doctor or medical specialist at a convenient time for assessment offline. It does not require the presence of both parties at the same time. Dermatology (cf: teledermatology), radiology, and pathology are common specialties that are conducive to asynchronous telemedicine. A properly structured medical record preferably in electronic form should be a component of this transfer. A key difference between traditional in-person patient meetings and telemedicine encounters is the omission of an actual physical examination and history. The 'store-and-forward' process requires the clinician to rely on a history report and audio/video information in lieu of a physical examination.Remote monitoring, also known as self-monitoring or testing, enables medical professionals to monitor a patient remotely using various technological devices. This method is primarily used for managing chronic diseases or specific conditions, such as heart disease, diabetes mellitus, or asthma. These services can provide comparable health outcomes to traditional in-person patient encounters, supply greater satisfaction to patients, and may be cost-effective.Interactive telemedicine services provide real-time interactions between patient and provider, to include phone conversations, online communication and home visits.Many activities such as history review, physical examination, psychiatric evaluations and ophthalmology assessments can be conducted comparably to those done in traditional face-to-face visits. In addition, "clinician-interactive”. interaction can go beyond than just exchange ideas. tele-physical interaction with the patient is one example in a surgery addressed with a robot commanded remotely.
