Welcome to Kalkine’s educational series. Let’s see the topic for today, it’s telehealth. What is Telehealth?
Telehealth is the delivery of health care services by conquering distance and providing access to patients who cannot travel.
Telehealth can achieve universal health coverage by improving access to quality and cost-effective health services to patients wherever they may be.
How does Telehealth work?
Telehealth uses information and communications technology for exchanging information in order to diagnose and treat diseases and injuries, research, evaluation, and continuing education of health professionals.
Further, it can be used remotely from home or by doctors in their clinics to make healthcare service as accessible as possible.
People can use smart gadgets, like personal computers, tablets, or mobile phones, to check most healthcare data, including prescriptions, laboratory appointments, among others.
