If you live in a rural area or just hate going to the doctor, telemedicine is for you, here I explain why.
It began in the 1950s and began mainly due to the need to be able to see the rural patient or those who do not have enough time to go to an appointment.
The beginnings were by phone, but today with all the technology, doctors and patients can see everyone else, they can have diagnoses or even finish with a treatment, now you can take care of it in the comfort of your home, office or even vacations.
Perhaps you have also heard of TELEHEALTH …
Is it the same?
Here we tell you the definition so that you understand the differences.
- TELEMEDICINE: ” Healing from a distance” Is a technique that uses new technologies to provide remote clinical services.
- TELEHEALTH: Defined as “The utilization of electronic information and telecomunications to support and promote long-distance clinical health care, public health and heath administration”
As you can see today, it doesn’t matter if you have to work, if you are on vacation or if you are a digital nomad and cannot travel to your home to see your doctor of all time, now you just have to make a video call. Now you have no excuse to skip a heyday because you even have appoiments for that.
