Telemedicine, a branch of healthcare is expanding globally due to the increase in the number of e-patients. Technologies have such a great influence on our day-to-day life that we all are constantly engaged with laptops, smart phones and are 24/7 online. Now a day, electronic devices can connect to both wireless computer networks as well as to wireless telephone networks, enabling independent access to patient data wherever you are in the globe. With the use of internet and cloud technology, many remote areas who have limited access to healthcare are connected to healthcare facilities and treatment is provided by reducing travel time.
The demand for tele-echocardiography, one of areas of telemedicine is increasing with hospitals, imaging centers, mobile clinics. Tele-echocardiography is becoming the integrated part of clinical available echocardiography tool set. Together with several key advancements within echocardiography itself, now there is accelerating specific need for tele-echocardiography. With the use of HIPAA compliant transfer of images, echocardiograms are sent via the internet through an established VPN.
What are Echocardiograms (Echo)?
Echocardiogram (Echo) is the widely utilized, non-invasive, standardized cardiovascular imaging modality. With the use of high-pitched sound waves, it produces images of the heart. Echocardiograms can depict the cardiac structure and function and help in detection and management of many types of heart disease. In tele-echocardiography, the images of the heart (Echo) are sent electronically to the cardiologists sitting in a healthcare facility. Based on them cardiologists interpretation of the images, and provide the diagnosis and plan further treatment. The addition of echocardiograms to the clinical evaluation significantly increases diagnostic accuracy, reduces unwanted diagnostic and treatment referrals. However, tele-echocardiography requires specialist expertise in the areas of image acquisition and interpretation. Integration of web-based remote monitoring, expert interpretation of stored images allows efficient healthcare delivery to remote areas. This helps in optimizing cardiovascular health outcomes in communities.
