Telemedicine is an essential tool for physicians and healthcare providers to provide care and treatment using telecommunication technology. The approach has been going through a revolutionary change over the years. In the past, telemedicine was used mostly to connect doctors working with a patient in one location to specialists somewhere else. This was of great benefit to rural or hard to reach populations where specialists aren’t readily available. Throughout the next several decades, the equipment necessary to conduct remote visits remained expensive and complex, so the use of the approach, while growing, was limited. The rise of the internet age brought with it profund changes for the practice of telemedicine.
The proliferation of smart devices, capable of high-quality video transmission, opened up the possibility of delivering remote healthcare to patients in their homes, workplaces or assisted living facilities as an alternative to in-person visits for both primary and speciality care. Today, it is an inevitable healthcare tool that demands more digital innovation with the unprecedented global emergency of COVID-19 on the rise. With such widespread and devastating consequences of the pandemic, it is a remarkable importance that telemedicine and the exchange of medical knowledge and experiences also have no limit.
