Telemedicine robots let doctors ‘beam’ into hospitals to evaluate patients, expanding access

Telemedicine robots let doctors ‘beam’ into hospitals to evaluate patients, expanding access | Activ Doctors Online | Scoop.it

The doctor isn’t in, but he can still see you now.

 

Remote presence robots are allowing physicians to “beam” themselves into hospitals to diagnose patients and offer medical advice during emergencies.

 

A growing number of hospitals in California and other states are using telepresence robots to expand access to medical specialists, especially in rural areas where there’s a shortage of doctors.

 

These mobile video-conferencing machines move on wheels and typically stand about 5 feet, with a large screen that projects a doctor’s face. They feature cameras, microphones and speakers that allow physicians and patients to see and talk to each other.

 

 

“Regardless of where the patient is located, we can be at their bedside in several minutes,” said Dr. Alan Shatzel, medical director of the Mercy Telehealth Network. “Literally, we compress time and space with this technology. No longer does distance affect a person’s ability to access the best care possible.”

Providing Patients with Access to their Personal Medical Records On-The-Go

These are the slides from my talk on "Providing Patients with Access to their Personal Medical Records On-The-Go" at the 2nd Annual Wireless Healthcare Asia Summit 2012 in Singapore.

 

Instead of talking about hard core tech and uber cool technologies, this time I touched upon the issues which have hurt the adoption of patient record technologies and driven the usage down, and caused consequent fragmentation of potential solutions.

 

I strongly feel that actively driving adoption is the key to realizing the benefits of healthcare technology. And my talk was about a 3 point strategy to electronic patient records. INTEGRATE , ENGAGE AND SHARE...

MaddieWalrus's curator insight, November 15, 2013 7:12 PM

This seems to be very helpful and convenient for patients, but what I'm worried about is the hacking of personal records. The web and technology is a very common "play ground" for hackers and creepy people. If something is on the internet it can be hacked (by the wrong people.) And, especially since they're health records, it's not safe to put it on there. Someone could potentionally hack the system, get into someone's records, find their illnesses snd their location, and harm them! Now, I might be over reacting and exaggerating, but it's not the safest thing to put personal records on internet files. I'm not against a more convenient way to of things such as technology, but until it's completely secure, they can't risk this kind of stuff.
