Impact of Video Communications in Healthcare
In healthcare, nothing is as important as giving patients the care they need. But for many hard-to- reach or homebound patients, visiting a physician can be challenging. Video communications solutions make doctor, patient and expert access as easy as dialling a phone.
With video communications physicians can be virtually connected to patients and use technology to conduct examinations and provide diagnoses real-time using a video device, computer, tablet or mobile device. Patients can be monitored
from home and still have the benefit of face-to- face communications. Specialists can also be accessed real-time when needed during a medical emergency. Teams of physicians can collaborate remotely exchanging information, observations and recommendations to accelerate patient care.
