Telemedicine industry in age of Covid-19

Press Release: June 16, 2020

What do we know about the telemedicine? Telemedicine is a remote interaction between patients and doctors by using special software. Telemedicine software development is becoming more and more reasonable within the context of the rapid spread of the coronavirus pandemic around the world.

In our fresh article, we studied the question about how the COVID-19 outbreak is impacting the healthcare industry, and in the light of the above, what the role telemedicine services could play in the fight against a pandemic.

It may seem remote examination of patients is not accurate enough to make a diagnosis and give the correct course of treatment. Yes, telemedicine is not so suitable for emergencies, such as appendicitis or a broken leg. However, the possibilities of telemedicine are life-saving in case of the slightest suspicion of a virus, or when an urgent consultation with a doctor is needed.

You can look it up:

  • Thanks to online medicine, the social distance is reduced (there is no need to go to a crowded hospital), which means that the risk of getting infected and spreading the infection is reduced. 
  • Access to high-quality medical services is provided to people from the most remote corners of the country and the earth, which gradually helps to reduce the disease progress curve.
  • Hospital wards load and medical staff load is reduced, because of getting an appointment with only a few clicks.

Telemedicine software requirements have been softened for the period of COVID-19. There is enough now minimal functionality to connect the patient with the doctor and monitor the patient's condition, keep a medical history, and quickly respond to the next request. 

Such a platform should contain a working panel for the doctor and the patient. There should also be plugged here the video conferencing and consultations recording software.

There are still some obstacles restricting telemedicine development such as reimbursement, billing, and documentation. However, bureaucratic issues become secondary and begin to simplify at the state level of leading countries in a situation where the emphasis is shifted to the fight against the coronavirus.

Telemedicine has a promising future. There are more and more medical service providers who need a functional and one-size-fits-all telemedicine software solution. Read more about what the irrefutable advantages telemedicine has over traditional medicine during COVID-19.
