The USA reported a rise in the number of elemental therapy patients since COVID occurred. New York Governor launched a free hotline containing 6,000 therapists to meet the growing need for mental health counseling in the midst of COVID-19.
Fremont, CA: Telemedicine has been an important part of hospitals' healthcare practice today. After COVID-19 occurred, the demand for telemedicine services increased massively. Although just 11 percent of customers were used to telehealth services before the pandemic, by 2020 this figure had surpassed the 46 percent level.
The growth in demand for telehealth services has contributed to the adoption of innovative telemedicine technologies by hospitals and clinics and made them part of their healthcare strategy. It helps hospitals and clinics to utilize online counseling, video conferencing, and remote monitoring capabilities for rapid diagnosis and care by integrating a telemedicine application or program.
Not only has the use of telemedicine expanded the space for healthcare providers, but it has also proved to be a cost-effective tool. We look at the key applications/benefits of telemedicine technologies in this article to see how they continue to enhance the healthcare delivery service.
Providing consultations on mental wellbeing
An emerging area in which counselors offer therapeutic counseling to patients via email, online chat, video conferencing, or voice call is also known as telemental health online therapy.
It is useful for recovery patients and supports those in rural/remote areas who do not leave their homes or are located. Patients with depression, anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorder, bipolar disorder, and more are supported by complementary health care.

Faster diagnosing and treating strokes
If a patient isn't given appropriate care on time, strokes can be life-threatening. The ability to treat depends on the ability of a doctor, such as whether the main signs of a stroke can be recognized by him/her. The patient is given tissue plasminogen activator medication, also known as tPA, after symptom recognition. Small and remote clinics, sadly, do not have specialist neurologists who can suggest doses of medication or other injectables. By integrating video conferencing capabilities into a telemedicine program, this problem can be tackled. For a rapid diagnosis and treatment, a telemedicine application/software with the scanner and video conferencing features would enable doctors to collaborate with expert neurologists.
