Telemedicine is the practice of medicine over distance with the use of telecommunications equipment. Early telemedicine solutions were a simple telephone call from one physician to another requesting advice or consultation. Today, telemedicine brings patients, physicians and specialists located hundreds of miles from each other into one setting for actual examinations, evaluations and consultations via store-and-forward and live video interaction.. The Telemedicine Network currently consists of nine sites with an additional 20 sites to be connected over the next nine months. By year 2005, 223 Health Centers or Patient Clinics, 21 Rural and Regional Hospitals and nine National Hospitals are to be connected to the network. "We are providing greater accessibility to health care services and resources in rural communities as a result of this programme", stated Jamie Cortes, M.D., and General Surgeon at the Hospital Nacional de Nino, San Jose.

To improve the level of emergency care provided to children presenting to rural and underserved hospitals in Northern California, the University of California Davis Childrens Hospital (UCDCH) has created a pediatric telemedicine program. Even though this program has a relatively low volume of patients, it has provided high impact services and high satisfaction scores from family members.. "The telemedicine program has allowed rural physicians like trauma surgeons, neurosurgeons, and adult intensivists to access pediatric critical care consultations for their patients," said Yael Harris, Ph.D., director of the Office of Health IT & Quality, HRSA, during an eHealth Initiative Telemedicine webinar, on Feb. 29..

Telemedicine has been touted as a way to fill in some gaps in health care for rural residents. But telemedicine relies on broadband service, which parts of Appalachia still dont have.. "Without broadband, you dont have telemedicine," said nurse practitioner Lindsey Kennedy. Kennedy manages the telemedicine program at Bland County Medical Center in southwestern Virginia.. The clinic is located at that tip of Virginia that curves down between West Virginia, North Carolina, Tennessee and Kentucky. Kennedy said patients from all of those states utilize the clinics telemedicine services.. The Bland clinic is a federally qualified health center, which means that many of the clinics patients are uninsured or underinsured. Without telemedicine, patients needing specialty care have to drive to a hospital that offers financial assistance, which could be hours away.. "But its just not feasible for our patients to drive that far and to provide the finances for transportation and the time for that," ...

Many states still limit Medicaid reimbursement for telemedicine, and, according to the American Telemedicine Association, 24 states specify settings, such as a doctors office, where a patient must be in order to participate in a telemedicine appointment. In Texas, the state Medical Board is involved in a legal dispute over its insistence that "a doctor-patient relationship" be established before telemedicine can be used. The dispute, however, doesnt apply to school telemedicine as long as a school nurse is present.. But as state policymakers become more accustomed to telemedicine and familiar with its benefits, "were seeing many of the restrictions falling to the wayside," said Latoya Thomas, the director of state policy for the American Telemedicine Association.. The impetus for school telemedicine in Howard County, where Ducketts Lane is located, came from former County Executive Ken Ulman. Ulman believed that health disparities in lower-income areas of the county were depressing student ...

Diabetes education is important in the treatment of the person with diabetes. A diabetes self-management education program not only educates the patient and his/her family to the basics of diabetes care but also integrates diabetes care into daily life while providing coping skills to adjust to this chronic illness. Unfortunately, comprehensive diabetes care is not available to all persons with diabetes. One obstacle to the provision of comprehensive diabetes care is the unavailability of a diabetes treatment center. many people with diabetes live too far or do not have the transportation to be able to attend education programs that met national standards. We have shown that telemedicine is an effective means to provide comprehensive 1:1 individualized diabetes education to persons with diabetes. We now propose to test the hypothesis that diabetes groups education classes can be provided effectively through telemedicine technology to individuals living in rural areas. Patients with diabetes will ...
Background: AHA/ACC guidelines recommend prehospital 12-lead ECG for patients with acute coronary syndromes (ACS). However, transmission of prehospital 12-lead ECG to emergency department (ED) is still not spread and ECG interpretation on the prehospital and ED is not established. Therefore, we developed and tested the clinical usefulness of the mobile telemedicine system (MTS) to transmit 12-lead ECG and other parameters between moving ambulances and physicians in cardiac emergency.. Methods: We set up the MTS on an ambulance in clinical condition. Real time 12-lead ECG was transmitted together with vital signs and live video during transferring the patient by the ambulance. We assess the efficacy and usefulness of the MTS for the triage on 90 cardiovascular emergency cases in the super-acute phase from June 2008 to May 2009. During the same period, we had 140 acute myocardial infarction (AMI) cases. Sixteen of these were used this MTS. Then, we compared various data between MTS (n=16) and ...

Despite the promise of telehealth in cardiology, hurdles to wider use of these tools remain in the form of inconsistent reimbursement policy and implementation challenges.. A recent analysis suggested that 6.8% of nonspecialty US hospitals are participating in a telecardiology programs. Interviews conducted with 36 hospitals participating in telemedicine efforts of any specialty found that the programs help them boost access to care and keep lower acuity patients at home. Many programs reported using a one-time funding source to get their telemedicine programs off the ground, but many also reported that reimbursement challenges have hampered their efforts.. Some physicians have also been slow to embrace the technology.. "There is a large group of skeptics and there are reimbursement issues," said Banchs.. Medicare currently only reimburses for virtual telehealth visits for patients in rural areas, with a few exceptions, and only 0.2% of beneficiaries in 2014 used a telehealth service, according ...
Receiving proper, purposeful and needs-oriented training is important to healthcare professionals expected to undertake the new ways of working implied by the implementation of telecare. This is in contrast to the informal learning that a majority of healthcare professionals report in regards to telecare practice [35]. The importance of training was largely expressed in terms of its role in creating the necessary confidence to master new skills and foster the attitudes necessary to provide care at a distance and successfully adopt telecare practice [3, 12, 17, 30, 31]. Carter, Horrigan and Hudyma [23] note similar findings, in that telecare training was regarded as important in fostering practitioner confidence and a positive attitude towards the use of telecare in the delivery of healthcare services. As such, staff training should emphasise a positive view of telecare as a way of enabling and supporting, as opposed to replacing, existing professional competencies and care processes [14, ...
OBJECTIVE: To examine clinical outcomes before and after implementation of a telemedicine program in the intensive care units of a five-hospital healthcare system.. DESIGN: Observational study with the baseline period of 1 yr before the start of a telemedicine intensive care unit program implementation at each of 5 hospitals. The post periods are 1, 2, and 3 yrs after telemedicine intensive care unit program implementation at each hospital.. SETTING: Ten adult intensive care units (114 beds) in five community hospitals in south Florida. A telemedicine intensive care unit program with remote 24/7 intensivist and critical care nurse electronic monitoring was implemented by a phased approach between December 2005 and July 2007.. MEASUREMENTS AND MAIN RESULTS: Records from 24,656 adult intensive care unit patients were analyzed. Hospital length of stay, intensive care unit length of stay, hospital mortality, and Case Mix Index were measured. Severity of illness using All Patient Refined-Diagnosis ...

Recent reviews suggest that telemedicine solutions for patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) may prevent hospital readmissions and emergency room visits and improve health-related quality of life. However, the studies are few and only involve COPD patients who are in a stable phase or in-patients who are ready for discharge. COPD patients hospitalized with an acute exacerbation may also benefit from telemedicine solutions. The overall aim is to investigate a telemedicine-based treatment solution for patients with acute exacerbation of COPD at home as compared to conventional hospital treatment measured according to first treatment failure, which is defined as readmission due to COPD within 30 days after discharge. COPD patients with acute exacerbation who fulfilled the eligibility criteria and were from two university hospitals in Denmark were randomized (1:1) by computer-generated tables that allocated treatments in blocks of four to receive either standard treatment at the
The goal of this report was to assess telemedicine services that substitute for face-to-face medical diagnosis and treatment and that may apply to the Medicare population. We focused on three distinct telemedicine study areas -- store-and-forward, self-monitoring/testing, and clinician-interactive services.
Recently, experts testified before the House Small Business Committee about the impact of telemedicine on providers, patients and small practices. In the last few years, studies have examined how telemedicine impacts patient care, medication management, blood pressure and more. While the body of research is relatively young, telemedicine is proving to be a viable tool for improving health care. "Telemedicine has been demonstrated to mitigate many of our nations significant challenges including disparities in access to care, workforce shortages, and geographic mal-distribution of providers," said Karen S. Rheuban, MD, FACC, professor of pediatrics and director of the University of Virginia Center for Telehealth, during her testimony before the committee. "Telemedicine improves patient triage and clinical outcomes, reduces the burden of travel for care, and fosters more timely access to care." Last week, ACC President Patrick T. OGara, MD, FACC, shared his perspective on how personalized ...
The large study was conducted to review recent evidence on the effectiveness of telemedicine - the use of telecommunications to deliver health services - which is a rapidly growing field. It included 111 randomized controlled trials conducted in the United States, Korea, Canada, Australia and other countries.. The researchers found that the use of telephones, smartphones, texting (SMS) and interactive websites (Web portals), which allowed two-way communication between patients and health care providers about blood glucose levels and interventions such as exercise and medication adjustments, had a positive effect on blood sugar levels. Our systematic review showed that telemedicine may be a useful supplement to usual clinical care to control HbA1C [glycated hemoglobin], at least in the short term. Telemedicine interventions appeared to be most effective when they use a more interactive format, such as a Web portal or text messaging, to help patients with self-management, writes senior author ...

The goal of the NCTRC is to increase the consistency, efficiency, and impact of federally funded telehealth technical assistance services. This was made possible by 14 Telehealth Resource Centers and administered through grant #G22RH30365 from the Office for the Advancement of Telehealth, Federal Office of Rural Health Policy, Health Resources and Services Administration, Department of Health and Human Services. ...
To our knowledge this is the first systematic review with the purpose of summarizing studies measuring the effectiveness of telemedicine follow-up care of patients with leg and foot ulcers. The evidence that we identified [47] still renders it inconclusive whether telemedicine management of people with diabetes-related foot ulcers may be an equivalent alternative to traditional follow-up concerning the healing time of the ulcers. The strength of the evidence is very low and limited by the study design: a high risk of systematic bias, insufficient and partly inadequate reporting of predefined outcome values and few participants especially in the intervention group.. Randomized controlled trials with larger samples and sufficient follow-up time are needed to produce valid evidence about the effectiveness of telemedicine follow-up care of leg and foot ulcers. Even though health care services have used telemedicine for several years, studies that evaluate the effect of telemedicine have been limited ...
It was billed as an innovative way to link Illawarra patients with medical specialists from across Australia and around the globe. Video medical consulting from the familiarity of a GPs rooms was to remove barriers for people having difficulty getting to major cities. But the federal government announced it will cut telehealth services to outer metropolitan areas from January next year - meaning Illawarra residents wont have access.

Telehealth and Telecare Aware posts pointers to a broad range of news items. Authors of those items often use terms telecare and telehealth in inventive and idiosyncratic ways. Telecare Awares editors can generally live with that variation. However, when we use these terms we usually mean:. • Telecare: from simple personal alarms (AKA pendant/panic/medical/social alarms, PERS, and so on) through to smart homes that focus on alerts for risk including, for example: falls; smoke; changes in daily activity patterns and wandering. Telecare may also be used to confirm that someone is safe and to prompt them to take medication. The alert generates an appropriate response to the situation allowing someone to live more independently and confidently in their own home for longer.. • Telehealth: as in remote vital signs monitoring. Vital signs of patients with long term conditions are measured daily by devices at home and the data sent to a monitoring centre for response by a nurse or doctor if ...

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. - A growing number of medical centers that have access to stroke specialists are transmitting their expertise to rural communities via audio/video telemedicine consultation, with significant clinical results, according to a new clinical study that examined trials conducted in Arizona and California.. The study, Pooled Analysis of the STRokE DOC and STRokE DOC-AZ Telemedicine Stroke Trials, followed two primary "hub" stroke centers - Mayo Clinic in Arizona and the University of California, San Diego - and six rural "spoke" hospitals. Results support the hypothesis that compared with telephone consultations, telemedicine evaluation of stroke patients results in more accurate diagnoses, better emergency decision-making, fewer complications and encouraging long-term outcomes. STRokE DOC (Stroke Team Remote Evaluation using a Digital Observation Camera) connects stroke specialists at the hub site to a remote spoke site, using an internet connection.. According to Bart Demaerschalk, ...
EDITOR-The article by Wootton et al is a valuable addition to the limited literature on the cost effectiveness of telemedicine applications.1 But we have some reservations about their calculations of the net societal cost of a teledermatology consultation.. Wootton et al are comparing outpatient dermatology, current clinical practice, with real time teledermatology in terms of clinical outcomes, cost benefit (which should theoretically include the monetary valuation of clinical outcomes), and patient satisfaction.. Having calculated a total cost of £201.88 for a teledermatology consultation, Wootton et al subtracted two values from this total to arrive at the net societal cost. Firstly, they deducted the "savings" that would be made from reduced dermatology referrals, which they attribute to the learning benefits and increased confidence in managing patients obtained from … ...
An originating site may be reimbursed a facility fee. The originating site is a facility at which the member is located during the telemedicine-based service. It may be a physicians office, a hospital outpatient department, an inpatient facility, or any other appropriate POS with the requisite equipment and staffing necessary to facilitate a telemedicine service. The originating site may not be an emergency room.. Note: The originating site facility fee is not an RHC/FQHC service and, therefore, may not be reported as an encounter on the cost report. Any reimbursement for the originating site facility fee must be reported as a deductive value on the cost report.. For more information see the ATA Wiki page for Wisconsin here.. ...
Interest in telemedicine has grown during the COVID-19 pandemic as more people look for ways to maintain their health while staying at home. #SASpine began enhancing our telemedicine tools available for patients to manage their healthcare and receive services weeks before the COVID-19 pandemic.

2014 Background: Home-based telecare (TC) is utilised to manage risks of independent living and provide prompt emergency responses. This study examined the effect of TC on health-related quality of life (HRQoL), anxiety and depressive symptoms over 12 months in patients receiving social care. Design: A study of participant-reported outcomes [the Whole Systems Demonstrator (WSD) Telecare Questionnaire Study; baseline n = 1,189] was nested in a pragmatic cluster-randomised trial of TC (the WSD Telecare trial), held across three English Local Authorities. General practice (GP) was the unit of randomisation and TC was compared with usual care (UC). Methods: Participant-reported outcome measures were collected at baseline, short-term (4 months) and long-term (12 months) follow-up, assessing generic HRQoL, anxiety and depressive symptoms. Primary intention-to-treat analyses tested treatment effectiveness and were conducted using multilevel models to control for GP clustering and covariates for ...
Introduction There is an increased demand for intensive care unit (ICU) beds. We sought to determine if we could create a safe surge capacity model to increase ICU capacity by treating ICU patients in the post-anaesthesia care unit (PACU) utilizing a collaborative model between an ICU service and a telemedicine service during peak ICU bed demand. Methods We evaluated patients managed by the surgical critical care service in the surgical intensive care unit (SICU) compared to patients managed in the virtual intensive care unit (VICU) located within the PACU. A retrospective review of all patients seen by the surgical critical care service from January 1st 2008 to July 31st 2011 was conducted at an urban, academic, tertiary centre and level 1 trauma centre. Results Compared to the SICU group ( n = 6652), patients in the VICU group ( n = 1037) were slightly older (median age 60 (IQR 47-69) versus 58 (IQR 44-70) years, p = 0.002) and had lower acute physiology and chronic health evaluation (APACHE) II

Its difficult to find a part of the United States that hasnt been touched by the opioid addiction epidemic. According to the most recent available Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) data, more than 33,000 people died of opioid overdoses (either prescription drugs or heroin) in 2015. Whats more, each day approximately 91 Americans die of opioid overdoses. But as the results of a new study, first highlighted in Beckers Hospital Review, demonstrate, telemedicine can play a role in bringing treatment to those struggling with addiction, particularly for patients in underserved communities. "Telemedicine may be an effective alternative to delivering in person OAT [opioid agonist therapy], and it has the potential to expand access to care in rural, remote, and urban regions," the studys authors note.. The researchers, all of whom are based in Canada, sought to determine whether or not OAT treatment plans that involved mostly telemedicine visits were as effective as treatment plans ...
Telemedicine is known by several names - eHealth, telehealth, eMedicine and Internet healthcare to name a few. Whatever the title, telemedicine is the provision of healthcare solutions to geographically remote areas via Internet technology. Simply put, telemedicine uses telecommunications to allow physicians to diagnose and treat patients anywhere in the world. Please note - This category does not concern businesses serving the healthcare industry, instead see Business/Healthcare.
9. Telemedicine refers to the use of communication and information technologies for the delivery of clinical care. It may be as simple as two health professionals discussing a case over the telephone, or as complex as using satellite technology and video-conferencing equipment to conduct a real-time consultation between medical specialists in two different countries.

Using a telemedicine system to engage people in underserved, urban communities to measure and report their blood pressure remotely -- outside of the doctors office -- appears to help them achieve blood pressure goals and improve adherence to lifestyle changes and medication recommendations, according to research being presented at the American College of Cardiologys 62nd Annual Scientific Session. Overall, researchers say that just being in a system of care, with or without telemedicine, can result in important reductions in blood pressure.

Why is it that when you slap a computer with the Internet on it, everything suddenly becomes "Telemedicine"? Since the telephone was introduced doctors have been giving instructions from remote. Is that "Telemedicine?" For years I have been reviewing photos of patients and their X-Rays via email from distant GPs. Am I on the cutting edge of Telemedicine? I have had remote PACS access to a number of hospitals and reviewed films from home. I have advised surgeons and GPs in other towns how to perform surgical procedures over the telephone. Should I be on the news because I am a frontier Tele-surgeon? I dont think so... this is just part of the pervasiveness of communications technology into common life, as well as medicine ...
Seniors are four times more likely to visit the emergency department (ED) than younger populations. A case series study by Shah et al. examined the use of high-intensity telemedicine for older, community-dwelling adults to reduce ED visits. The results of the study indicated fewer visits to and decreased time spent in the ED. However, the current literature on telemedicine as a health care delivery model has shown mixed results. Future research needs to identify the appropriate type of patients, health systems, and program factors that can predict the success of this health care delivery model.. Full text (PDF, 280KB).

Abstract: Background Still picture transmission was performed using a telemedicine system in an Emergency Medical Service (EMS) during a prospective, controlled trial. In this ancillary, retrospective study the quality and content of the transmitted pictures and the possible influences of this application on prehospital time requirements were investigated. Methods A digital camera was used with a telemedicine system enabling encrypted audio and data transmission between an ambulance and a remotely located physician. By default, images were compressed (jpeg, 640 x 480 pixels). On occasion, this compression was deactivated (3648 x 2736 pixels). Two independent investigators assessed all transmitted pictures according to predefined criteria. In cases of different ratings, a third investigator had final decision competence. Patient characteristics and time intervals were extracted from the EMS protocol sheets and dispatch centre reports. Results Overall 314 pictures (mean 2.77 ± 2.42 ...
The recent revolution in digital technologies and information processing methods present important opportunities to transform the way optical imaging is performed, particularly toward improving the throughput of microscopes while at the same time reducing their relative cost and complexity. Lensfree computational microscopy is rapidly emerging toward this end, and by discarding lenses and other bulky optical components of conventional imaging systems, and relying on digital computation instead, it can achieve both reflection and transmission mode microscopy over a large field-of-view within compact, cost-effective and mechanically robust architectures. Such high throughput and miniaturized imaging devices can provide a complementary toolset for telemedicine applications and point-of-care diagnostics by facilitating complex and critical tasks such as cytometry and microscopic analysis of e.g., blood smears, Papanicolaou (Pap) tests and tissue samples. In this article, the basics of these lensfree ...

AU - Switzer, Jeffrey A.. AU - Hess, David C.. AU - Smith, Matthew L.. AU - Ritchey, Matthew D.. PY - 2018/12. Y1 - 2018/12. N2 - Telestroke is a telemedicine intervention that facilitates communication between stroke centers and lower-resourced facilities to optimize acute stroke management. Using administrative claims data, we assessed trends in telestroke use among fee-for-service Medicare beneficiaries with acute ischemic stroke and the association between providing telestroke services and intravenous tissue plasminogen activator (IV tPA) and mechanical thrombectomy use, mortality, and medical expenditures, by urban versus rural county of residence in the period 2008-15. The proportion of ischemic stroke cases receiving telestroke increased from 0.4 to 3.8 per 1,000 cases, with usage highest among younger, ...
A case study highlights clinical utilization and cost outcomes of the after-hours on-demand telemedicine intervention TripleCare in a skilled nursing facility.
Im terrible about going to the doctor, just because of the time it takes," Ms. DeVisser, 35, said. "This feels empowering: You just click a button and the doctor comes to you.". But telemedicine is facing pushback from some more traditional corners of the medical world. Medicare, which often sets the precedent for other insurers, strictly limits reimbursement for telemedicine services out of concern that expanding coverage would increase, not reduce, costs. Some doctors assert that hands-on exams are more effective and warn that the potential for misdiagnoses via video is great.. Legislatures and medical boards in some states are listening carefully to such criticisms, and a few, led by Texas, are trying to slow the rapid growth of virtual medicine. But many more states are embracing the new world of virtual house calls, largely by updating rules to allow doctor-patient relationships to be established and medications to be prescribed via video. Health systems, facing stiff competition from ...
Each year, hospital readmissions among skilled nursing facility (SNF) patients cost Medicare more than $4 billion-not an insignificant sum of money. But could telemedicine help to cut down on those readmissions? Thats what the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) are seeking to find out with a new yearlong pilot program funded in conjunction with a Florida state health care agency. As mHealth Intelligence first reported, telemedicine provider TripleCare will be testing its after-hours virtual care platform at three Florida-based SNFs. "Changes in patients conditions often occur in the off hours when physicians are not physically present at SNFs," TripleCare CEO Mary Jo Gorman noted in a press release. "This is precisely the time when TripleCares virtual physician services kick in.". The not-for-profit Targeting Revolutionary Elder Care Solutions (TRECS) Institute will be coordinating the pilot program. Founded in 2004, the organization is "dedicated to improving care for seniors ...
Telehealth can offer alternative options for receiving healthcare services in rural locations, improving access and reducing costs associated with traveling for services. However, the full potential of telehealth has not been realised with slow and fragmented uptake. This study describes the awareness, experiences and perceptions of telehealth in an Australian rural community. Semi-structured interviews were undertaken with 47 participants from three rural towns in the Darling Downs region of Queensland. Content analysis was used to abstract themes and core concepts from the interviews. Three participants were healthcare providers who had all previously used telehealth in their clinical practice. Twenty-seven (57 %) participants regularly travelled to access specialist healthcare. While 28 (60 %) participants were aware of telehealth, only six (13 %) had actually used telehealth services; three as patients and three as healthcare providers. Major themes evident included: acceptance of the need to travel

A recently published multicenter study from the eROP cooperative group supports this finding.7 The eROP study enrolled 1,257 infants with birth weight below 1,250 g and showed that two trained non-physician personnel were able to correctly diagnose treatment-warranted ROP with 82-percent sensitivity and 90-percent specificity when viewing images taken by 25 non-physician study personnel. When factoring in both eyes, sensitivity increased to 90 percent and specificity to 87 percent with negative predictive value of 97 percent. Most importantly, only three out of 162 infants who were treated by laser did not have treatment-warranted ROP diagnosed on the image set before laser was performed. Image quality did play an important role in the ability to make the correct diagnosis, as sensitivity increased from 68 percent to 85 percent when all of the retinal images used were judged to be good or acceptable.7 The authors conclude that the study provides strong support for using a telemedicine system ...

Telestroke is the use of telemedicine consultation with a neurologist to effectively treat patients who are suspected of having a stroke. Acute stroke can be a terrifying ordeal for patients and providers. Time critical decisions about whether or not to provide potentially disability preventing treatments must be made by trained professionals. Given to the wrong patient or outside the critical time window, the treatments can lead to severe negative outcomes.. Many hospitals and emergency rooms are not properly equipped to handle an acute stroke. Telestroke can help your hospital to be staffed by trained neurologists. Such services are one key step in becoming a Certified Stroke Center. Establishing a hospital as a stroke center can improve patient outcomes, lead to fewer transfers, and increased revenue and prestige of your facility. ...
