Telemedicine represents an innovative approach to healthcare practice, allowing the provision of services even without the patient having to go to healthcare facilities, making treatments accessible through a secure exchange of data, images, documents and video calls between healthcare professionals and patients.
Telemedicine can play an important role in the following situations:
We will talk about telemedicine at the free conference scheduled in Modena, on 6 October, in the Aula Magna of the Palazzo Ducale (home of the Military Academy).
With this event ECM accredited, promoted by the Local Health Authority, the Modena University Hospital and the Sassuolo SP A Hospitalmeans present the provincial experiences of telemedicine and teleassistance in implementation of the national and regional programming lines, taking into account the post-pandemic and organizational changes and epidemiological structures from Ministerial Decree 77/2022.
The healthcare organization is a significant element in the implementation of telemedicine, involving the healthcare and administrative technostructure transversally.
The dimensions to consider for the introduction of Telemedicine services are:
– the definition of the guidelines, in compliance with the legislation, which include the quality of care, privacy, risk assessment for the implementation of the different telemedicine services and the continuous monitoring of the paths implemented with the different telemedicine services , including through feedback from healthcare workers and patients;
– the technological structure, which includes reliable internet connections, appropriate hardware and software devices, data management systems and security systems to protect patient data and integration with existing IT systems;
– clinical engineering for the evaluation and management of medical devices;
– staff training and involvement;
– an internal and external communication plan aimed at operators and citizens to develop the culture of telemedicine;
– financial planning.
