Telehealth uses digital and telecommunications technologies to access or provide healthcare services remotely. Telehealth solutions comprise technologies (hardware & software) that enable providers to deliver medical services and patients to access them without either of them meeting physically. Telemedicine solutions have shown great promise in increasing access to care for distant, underserved rural communities. Since patients need not go to see their physicians in person, people who face difficulty with mobility or transportation can receive care from the comfort and privacy of their own homes.
Health Access for the elderly and patients with complicated conditions like post-surgery or cardiac arrest can become inconvenient. However, delays in care delivery in such cases can increase the health risks of the patients. Advanced telehealth solutions improve care access among high-risk adults and senior communities. Cloud-based telehealth is essential for looking after patients in homes and healthcare settings or those in rural areas. Telehealth dermatology, for instance, allows patients to consult with doctors about skin problems.

Telehealth is the use of digital and telecommunication technologies to deliver and facilitate healthcare services. This can include virtual consultations, prescriptions, patient education, medical information services, and so on. Telehealth eliminates the need for the doctor and patients to see each other in-person. It can extend the access to care for people living in remote locations.
1. Problems with physician reimbursement
Many payers don’t consider virtual consultations and remote care to be the same as conventional in-person care. As a result, physicians have to face reduced or limited reimbursements.
If a telehealth platform is not compatible with existing EHR software or hospital systems, it will complicate telemedicine workflows.
3. Lack of technical know-how for patients and providers
Navigating a telehealth platform might prove difficult for doctors and patients with limited technical aptitude.
4. Errors in diagnosis
Since doctors and patients won’t be seeing each other in-person, doctors are more likely to misdiagnose patients due to a lack of physical examinations.
5. Data security
Telemedicine software will increase the likelihood of data leaks or unauthorized data sharing by physicians.
6. Limited connectivity in some locations
People living in certain locations might face limitations with internet speeds, restricting their access to remote care
7. Hardware requirement
People living in poverty might have difficulty in purchasing required hardware to support telehealth software
Some of the best examples of telehealth include –
Telehealth is the use of technology to avail and provide healthcare services. It mainly relies on telecommunication services for internet connectivity and digital platforms like mobile applications or custom software. Telehealth technologies enable people to access medical care without being physically present at clinics or hospitals. The Covid-19 pandemic accelerated the adoption of telehealth systems since travel restrictions made it difficult and risky to travel to a healthcare facility.
Telemedicine software is a type of software that is used to deliver healthcare services and information to a remote location outside clinical settings. It uses video, audio, text, or all of them to disseminate medical services. It eliminates the need for doctors and patients to see each other in person. Telemedicine has shown great promise in being able to deliver specialist care to remote, undeserved locations.
Telehealth services are medical services provided by doctors and other healthcare professionals to patients without them seeing each other in person. Telehealth services are provided using software applications over the internet and they enable patients to access care without seeing doctors physically.
Video consultations, remote patient monitoring, secure messaging and chatbots to reach doctors, are some examples of telehealth services.
Telehealth is a general term that encompasses all the methods where doctors can provide medical services to patients without them having to see each other physically. In fact, telehealth platform will facilitate doctor-patient communication without them having to be in the same city. The idea behind telemedicine is not new, but the Covid-19 pandemic accelerated its adoption in the healthcare industry.
Telemedicine works through phone calls video calls, conference calls, chats, email, or texts, or all of them. Patients can use a dedicated software application for telemedicine to avail specific health services from doctors, who would also use that software. Using this software platform, the patients can book appointments and have a video consultation, receive e-prescriptions, share their tests results or scans, and receive advice from their doctor.
In this type of telehealth, doctors and patients have a virtual consultation through a software application, instead of an in-person one.
Patients record what they want to communicate and send it to their doctors, who in turn view it and send appropriate replies. Doctors and patients don’t communicate in real-time.
This involves the collection of patients’ health data and its electronic transmission to a doctor who might at a remote location.
These are mobile applications and other portable smart devices that are used for healthcare services.
Patients need to use software applications on smart devices and connect with doctors over the internet through the software. The dedicated software can be used to schedule appointments and even re-schedule them as per necessity.
After appointments have been confirmed, patients can communicate with their doctors, usually through video calls, and have a virtual consultation. Following the consultation, the patients would receive electronic prescriptions. They can also message their doctors securely to resolve any queries.
