Telemedicine allows healthcare professionals to evaluate, diagnose and treat patients in remote locations by using telecommunications and information technology as medium of communication between patients and doctors. Telemedicine is also referred to as telehealth or e-health. Telemedicine enables patients in remote locations to access medical expertise easily, efficiently and without travel. Telemedicine provides more efficient use of limited expert resources to monitor patients in remote locations whenever it is required without leaving their facility. In addition, this technology helps local practitioners to consult with their peers and with other clinical experts when it is required. Telemedicine further allows them to participate in seminars and educational conferences they would not normally have access to without travel and time away from their patient.
Some of the prominent players of this market include Aerotel Medical Systems Limited, AMD Telemedicine, Inc., Apollo PACS Inc., GE Healthcare Ltd., and Polycom, among others. The report covers the insights about future of telemedicine, telehealth industry statistics, telemedicine trends and mobile healthcare trends.
