PRLog - Dec. 19, 2012 - SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. -- Telemedicine is defined as the use of telecommunications technology by medical practitioners to remotely evaluate, diagnose and treat patients. The use of telemedicine devices, once a novelty, is now standard medical practice in daily use by healthcare practitioners throughout the world. GlobalMed, an industry leader in advanced telemedicine technology, offers a full range of products and solutions to enable doctors and their patients to realize the many benefits of telemedicine.
One of the most commonly cited reasons for the use of telemedicine technologies is the associated cost benefit. Telemedicine can be an extremely cost-effective method of care. By treating patients remotely, both doctors and patients can be spared the extra expense of regular office visits, such as the cost of fuel and time lost to travel and sitting in waiting rooms. Telemedicine has also been shown to reduce the need for hospital re-admissions, which can be an inconvenience for patients and are a significant expense to healthcare facilities.
Telemedicine can bring previously unavailable levels of care to remote or rural areas of the country and the world. Giving patients in these areas access to necessary specialists and better overall care is one of the cornerstones of telemedicine. Besides enhancing doctor-patient communication, telemedicine also helps create a better, stronger network of healthcare practitioners, allowing doctors around the world to exchange opinions and patient information with just the click of a mouse. This creates incredible value for physicians and their patients.
