Remote Medical Care – a Staple in Modern-day Patient Treatment

[Partner Content] The development of telemedicine practices is happening before our eyes. It started to gain momentum a few years ago as digitization became even more recognizable in the healthcare industry. However, the COVID-19 pandemic gave it a real kick. As a result, patients’ needs shifted and medical facilities need to follow them. An example of a relatively young telemedicine service that already complements traditional practices is remote medical care.

Remote medical care is slowly becoming an essential telemedical service that allows daily monitoring of a patient’s condition and regular out-of-facility health check-ups. It’s helpful in many medical fields, such as prophylaxis, diagnostics, elderly care, and more. The conjunction of mobile devices measuring vital signs and automatic analysis of the results carried out in the Remote Medical Care Center is what makes remote medical care unique and easy to adopt in every medical or caring facility.

Two Sides of Remote Medical Care’s Benefits

The existence of many benefits of remote medical care is rather undeniable. Nevertheless, it’s crucial to consider them in the light of two separate perspectives – medical facility and patient. Each of the above entities has its own, personalized needs, fears, and expectations that must be addressed in order to provide mutually beneficial medical care in a remote way.

Medical facilities often focus on solutions that can help their staff take good care of their patients and other responsibilities, and improve the patient’s entire journey in the medical system, whether that means shortening the time of hospitalization, raising the effectiveness of treatment, or increasing the patient’s adherence to the doctor’s recommendations.

Patients pay huge attention to the amount of time needed to get admitted to the hospital, as well as the response time in the event of an emergency. Of course, there’s no discussion on this – the shorter the time the better. Many patients also value the possibility to stay in direct contact with the medical staff and obtain safe access to their own medical data.

The above needs can be easily met and even work as the key benefits when remote medical care is properly adopted.
