Telemedicine became a popular term only after the revolution in wearable devices, internet connection availability, and mobile devices’ booming processing capabilities. Still, it might surprise you that the first example of telemedicine was in 1940, when radiology images were sent between two cities through telephone lines.

Patients have always preferred to meet their physicians in person, despite the dawning of telemedicine. However, the year 2019 had another plan. Later that year, the health committee in Wuhan City identified the first human cases of COVID-19, which changed life as we know it.

Almost all life aspects were affected by COVID-19 repercussions; however, the biggest turnover was how we interacted with each other. Social distancing was enforced due to the steady rising of infections. Consequently, hospitals and clinics became the riskiest places, especially for the elderly and patients with low immunity.

Physicians who wanted to stay engaged with their patients immediately advised them to have remote monitoring devices. That was the ideal solution to enable physicians to evaluate their patients’ vital signs in real-time.

Modern devices can accurately measure blood pressure, heart rate, blood saturation, temperature, blood sugar level, weight, activity, and more. After extracting the needed vitals, physicians can confidently diagnose their patients without meeting them in person.
