The History of Telemedicine
Telemedicine has been practiced for over 100 years.
Technologies such as the telegraph, telephone, and television have been the technological pillars that have bolstered this field, and its widespread adoption continues to grow over time.
The emergence of satellites and the internet, followed by the internet boom in the 1990s, brought an informational explosion, unprecedented information traffic, and rapid development of telemedicine, which includes:
- Patient education
- Transmission of complex medical images
- Conducting remote video consultations
- Performing measurements of body vital signs
Electronic medical records have emerged and, over the last decade, medical software applications have been developed, facilitating the exchange and storage of clinical data. Additionally, web portals have appeared for transmitting laboratory test results to patients or sending messages to doctors under highly secure conditions.
Telemedicine now utilizes smart devices and artificial intelligence.
Telemedicine can enhance the accessibility and effectiveness of medical services in our country.
With this technology, physicians can provide remote consultations and treatments, potentially reducing the strain on the medical system and allowing for faster and more efficient services to patients.
Moreover, telemedicine can lower the costs of medical services and travel expenses, offer support and access to some of the best medical practices and information, which can help improve the quality of medical services provided to patients.
