What is Telemedicine?

It is a term coined in the 1970s, which literally means “healing at a distance”,
(1) signifies the use of ICT to improve patient outcomes by increasing access to care and medical information. Recognizing that there is no one definitive definition of telemedicine – a 2007 study found 104 peer-reviewed definitions of the word.
(2) The World Health Organization has adopted the following broad description: INTRODUCTION: OVERVIEW OF TELEMEDICINE

“The delivery of health care services, where distance is a critical factor, by all health care professionals using information and communication technologies for the exchange of valid information for diagnosis, treatment and prevention of disease and injuries, research and evaluation, and for the continuing education of health care providers, all in the interests of advancing the health of individuals and their communities”.

(3) The many definitions highlight that telemedicine is an open and constantly evolving science, as it incorporates new advancements in technology and responds and adapts to the changing health needs and contexts of societies.

Telemedicine Studies

1] According to a study by Constant Therapy, stroke survivors engaged in telehealth-based therapies receive 5 times more therapy than patients who rely on in-person visits. They also claim that patients using telehealth-based programs experienced greater improvement in cognitive and speech accuracy, and processing speed. Other key findings:

  • Accuracy in language and cognitive exercises improved 15% in individuals with severe impairments by completing 100 exercises, and 40% for those completing 500 or more of the same exercises.
  • Processing speed in language and cognitive exercises improved more than 20% with 100 items completed, and over 80% after completing more than 500 exercises.

2] 28% Annual Increase in Telemedicine Visits Provided to Medicare Beneficiaries – Harvard Medical School researchers found that the number of telemedicine visits provided to Medicare beneficiaries increased by 28 percent per year from 2004 to 2013 with 107,000 visits provided in 2013. This is in one of the first studies to measure how often telemedicine is being used. Key findings:

  • More than 40,000 rural Medicare beneficiaries received one telemedicine visit in 2013, averaging 2.6 visits per patient.
  • Those most likely to have received telemedicine services were disabled beneficiaries with mental illness.
