Let's Define Telehealth

Technology has revolutionized the way people communicate with each other and it has a great potential to help solve contemporary global health problems.

Telehealth can be as simple as two doctors talking on the phone about a patient's care, or as complex as using robotic technology to perform surgery from a remote site. Today, telehealth is frequently associated with remote monitoring of a patient's condition; for example, blood pressure, heart rate, and other measures of health status can be obtained by a device worn by the patient and sent electronically to medical personnel.

Telehealth is a great tool for the dissemination of information on the care and prevention of chronic diseases such as cardiovascular, respiratory and of course epidemics.

"Telemedicine" is one of the most prominent, well-known and used branches of telehealth. It's the exchange of medical information through some electronic means of communication, between two people who are not located in the same space.

While telehealth is the health system as such, making use of ICT, with special emphasis on the preventive nature. In its broadest definition, telehealth includes a full range of activities that help the patient and the general population to be healthy: prevention, promotion, diagnosis, self-care and treatment.

What types of telehealth technologies exist and how are they improving healthcare?

Teleconsultations allow a doctor in a rural area to receive advice from a specialist, who may be in a distant location, about patients with special or complex conditions.

Remote Patient Monitoring (RPM) is a technology that allows patients to be monitored outside of conventional clinical settings, such as at home. MRP requires sensors in a device that wirelessly transmits or records physiological information to be analyzed by a healthcare professional.

Intraoperative monitoring (IOM) is a technique that allows a surgeon to perform continuous checks, records, and tests during a difficult surgical procedure. In neurological surgeries, MIO is used to detect potentially harmful changes in the brain, spinal cord, and peripheral nerve function before irreversible damage occurs. Rural hospital staff rarely has the necessary experience to perform this type of monitoring.
