Sharing Medical Knowledge
One major benefit to Global Telemedicine is ability to diagnose and create treatments plans with the help of remote doctors. Sometimes when treatments don’t work it is a big help to get another expert to review the situation.
Global Telemedicine consults do NOT replace the local doctor. We work through a local doctor who will then write prescriptions or issue orders to hospital staff. Sometimes we get images sent to the remote doctor and other times we speak with the patient and staff to discover a solution to the medical problem.
To assist we use a tablet and can use a Kubi (pictured above) which turns the tablet into a mini-telemedicine robot that assists in patient communication. Using this inexpensive technology we have been able to save lives and to improve patient outcomes.
