‘Remote delivery of health care services and clinical information using telecommunications technology’ is defined as Telehealth as per the American Telemedicine Association. The whitepaper entails different aspects of accelerated adoption of telehealth, its various forms, trends/enablers, challenges, along with benefits. It also contains telehealth technology solutions, and success stories, and underlines the path forward for the telehealth industry. Some of the key takeaways from the whitepaper are mentioned below.
- Telehealth is being leveraged in various forms such as virtual visits, chat-based interactions, remote patient monitoring, and technology-enabled modalities
- The challenges that are delaying quicker adoption of telehealth are malpractice liability, patient privacy, and confidentiality, state-specific regulations, absence of reimbursement, broadband connectivity, and unreliable diagnostics
- Thanks to accelerated telehealth adoption during the pandemic, there has been an increase in patient outcomes seen in areas such as chronic care management, mental health, remote patient monitoring, and population health management
Telehealth delivers tangible value by improving access and reach, cost efficiencies, improved quality, and consumer relief. There is a definitive need for virtual care to ‘heal from a distance’ in times of social distancing and telehealth is the key paradigm to unlocking the new normal. The future of healthcare is in the hands of technology that can drive cost, experience, and results. Remote monitoring with diagnostic equipment and user-friendly sensors with the use of AI, Big Data Analytics, IoT, VR/AR, and blockchain can make telehealth a versatile key to unlocking the future.
