The global adoption of telehealth technologies will potentially allow governments to make substantial savings on healthcare, while delivering important medical services to both rural and under-served communities,...
Telemedicine has reached a tipping point in 2016. Not only are we seeing more innovative companies entering this space but more health systems are creating telehealth centers and government regulations and reimbursement are falling into place.
Quatre patients ont pu être expertisés à distance depuis la signature d'une convention de télémédecine sur les accidents vasculaires cérébraux (AVC) entre le centre hospitalier Yves-Touraine de Pont-de-Beauvoisin (CHPB), dans l'Isère, et l'hôpital Métropole Savoie de Chambéry, indique un communiqué diffusé en décembre 2015 par le CHPB.
There is little evidence that telemedicine interventions consistently improve the quality of life of COPD patients, according to a new systematic review published recently in the International Journal of Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease.

De très nombreux sites internet donnent des informations sur la santé : sites d'associations de malades, sites rattachés à une publication ou à un organisme de recherche. Et de plus en plus de sites proposent des conseils en cas de problème de santé : des forums de discussion mais aussi des sites qui mettent en relation des patients et des professionnels de santé.
Telehealth is an overall set of capabilities that enable providers the ability to "deliver virtual medical, health, and education services”. As we prepare for HIMSS 16, we thought it was appropriate to ask the question can telehealth cure cancer?A recent article analyzing a 2014 HIMSStelehealth survey found that more than 67% of the respondents are investing in telehealth technology.Can this technology contribute to the curing of cancer?
Conclusions: A telemedicine-based symptom reporting program facilitated early treatment of symptoms and improved lung function and functional status.
Background: Patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) may not recognize worsening symptoms that require intensification of therapy. They may also be reluctant to contact a healthcare provider for minor worsening of symptoms. A telemedicine application for daily symptom reporting may reduce these barriers and improve patient outcomes. Materials and Methods: Patients hospitalized for a COPD exacerbation within the past year or using supplemental O2 were approached for participation. Patients received optimal COPD care and were given a telecommunication device for symptom reporting. Initial symptom scores were obtained while patients were in their usual state of health. Patients were randomly assigned to an intervention group or a control group (usual medical care). The control group patients were instructed to seek medical care if their condition worsened. The intervention group symptom scores were assessed by a computer algorithm and compared with initial values. Scores 1 or more points above the initial score generated an “alert,” and patients were reviewed by a nurse and referred to a physician who prescribed treatment.
Results: Eighty-six patients were screened; 79 met entry criteria and were randomized (intervention group, n=39; control group, n=40). Twelve patients submitted five or fewer symptom reports (5 intervention; 7 control) and were excluded from the analysis. Daily peak flow and dyspnea scores improved only in the intervention group. There were no differences in hospitalization and mortality rates between groups. No serious adverse events were reported.
