While you may think of video conference software and picture a room full of businessmen speaking with coworkers or clients around the world, there are other industries utilizing this technology too.
The American Telemedicine Association explains that, “Formally defined, telemedicine is the use of medical information exchanged from one site to another via electronic communications to improve a patient’s clinical health status. Telemedicine includes a growing variety of applications and services using two-way video, email, smart phones, wireless tools and other forms of telecommunications technology.”
This practice is becoming more and more popular as the advances in the video conferencing market continue. But what makes telemedicine so special? “Telemedicine is unique among all videoconferencing end-user applications in the fact that it can involve the most critical and sensitive cases, and also offer a personalized means of communication for training, education, peer consultation, patient monitoring and counseling at reduced costs,” Lance Littlejohn, President of Pipeline Video Solutions explains.
Video conferencing is becoming more popular in many different business industries as a way to save travel time and money. However, telemedicine cannot replace a visit to the doctors. “Telemedicine is not an alternative to the delivery of care given by physicians, but a complement to the way physicians can deliver care more effectively while facilitating communication more efficiently,” Littlejohn says.
