Applications of telemedicine
Telemedicine has potential with few limitations. Here are some of the possible applications of telemedicine.
Consultation and prescriptions
Consulting the doctor does not have to involve visiting their office. The majority of simple cases can be treated after a remote interview and looking at basic parameters, such as temperature or blood pressure. With many countries making e-prescriptions a standard, doctors can issue them and send them directly to pharmacies. With mobile devices almost universally available, patients can visit their doctors on the way to work, at the office, or from their bedroom.
