Telehealth is not a new approach. The first example of telehealth dates back to 1940, when doctors sent radiology images between two cities through telephone lines. Since then, telehealth has been evolving parallel to communications development.

We have discussed in past articles how the revolution in telehealth was in the benefits of patients, healthcare providers, and governments as well. You can read them here:

In 2019, healthcare providers were under tremendous pressure due to COVID-19. We have all seen doctors, hospitals, and clinics struggle due to unforeseen repercussions that exceeded their capacity. The unfortunate events of COVID-19 catalyzed the adoption of telehealth from healthcare providers and patients. In this article, we’ll tackle how telehealth can help you as a healthcare provider keep up with the growing patients’ demands without compromising the quality of your services.

1- Elevate Service Quality

There are unlimited advantages gained from using telehealth solutions as a healthcare provider, from perfecting your operations to increasing diagnosis accuracy, passing by cutting your costs. For instance, booking appointments with patients can’t get easier and more efficient. A patient no-show will be dropped as they get notified before their appointment, and it’s also easy for them to reschedule if needed. The admission process will take no time from your staffas it’sentirely automated. The doctor’s diagnosis accuracy will increase as advanced AI technologies help them collect, monitor, and analyze all patients’ records and vital signs. Using IoT and AI can even allow doctors to diagnose some diseases early. For example, our RPMAhealthcare solutions helped 58% of pre-diabetic patients avoid diabetes.

2- Increase Mobility and Connectivity

In many conditions, your patients may require immediate assistance. You can keep connected with those who need your medical attention and get notified once crucial changes in their vital signs occur, allowing you to contact them and give instructions or direct help to their location. You can also answer their questions through a secure connection.

Engaging with your patients will increase their satisfaction and loyalty levels and may save their lives one day.

3- Reduce Hospital Readmission

Hospital readmission is an unplanned or unpredicted patient admission to a hospital after being discharged in a certain time interval. Readmission to the hospital is difficult for boththe patients and their loved ones. It’s also an economic burden to the patients, healthinsurance companies, and the government healthcare system. Unfortunately, it’s directly linked to the quality of your healthcare service. Using telehealth to monitor patients’ vital signs to detect any critical patterns is helping to reduce hospital readmission by significant numbers and prevent further complications. We’re proud that our RPMAhealthcaresolution is proven to reduce hospitalizations by 75% and ER visits by 83%.
