To protect ourselves and our loved ones, we need to isolate ourselves. But accidents, chronic and new diseases will not wait until the corona pandemic is over. Here too, the best possible health care must continue to be provided.
- How can we perceive our visits to the doctor and at the same time stay in isolation?
- How can a highly qualified physician with his knowledge and experience continue to save patients’ lives during quarantine?
- How can an expert be in several places at the same time to assist his medical colleagues with advice?
The corona crisis is challenging our social structures in both the private and professional spheres. Our health and bureaucratic systems are being put to the test and questioned – how flexibly are we able to react and act in these challenging times of the corona virus?
Telemedicine provides flexibility
It is undisputed that telemedicine has many advantages. The question is rather why it has been used so rarely so far. It saves us money and time, conserves resources and enables us to operate on a larger scale. Since all the necessary structures and technologies are already available, telemedicine can be used quickly and easily.
It gives us the opportunity to make appointments with doctors even in isolation, without endangering ourselves or others. Doctors in quarantine can continue to work and be there for their colleagues and patients. Experts around the world can be consulted.
