What is Telemedicine?

Telemedicine is defined by the American Telemedicine Association (ATA) as “use of information exchanged from one place to another via electronic communications to improve a patients health status.” This includes providing direct consumer outreach and services and use of the internet and other technologies for tele-consultations, consumer medical education, remote patient monitoring, online medical records, specialist referrals and much more. In fact, telemedicine is not a new concept, it has been used for years through the NASA space program between astronauts in orbit and mission control as well as all branches of the U.S. military.

Important Statistics

The American Medical Association has reported that as many as 70% of all doctor visits are for information only or for matters that can be handled over the phone.

Studies show that over 70% of patients indicated a willingness to use email/telephone communication with a physician.

Data shows that over 36 million Americans have been treated through telemedicine consultations.

Patients are able to seek care in emergency rooms, however it comes at a significant expense with the average ER visit, costing three to five times higher than a regular office visit.

Market analyst Datamonitor predicts that the overall global telehealth market is expected to exceed $8 billion by 2012.

In total, as much as $300 billion of health care costs are unnecessary, inappropriate and/or wasteful. This results in higher insurance costs for groups and individuals.

How It Works

Unlike most telemedicine websites, Telemedicine Jobs has simplified the electronic medical records system. In fact, it is so user friendly that even if you are not computer savvy you can still learn it within one hour. Telemedicine Jobs has stuck to this principal for two reasons 1.) Decreases the learning curve for efficiency, since treating the patient is more important then trying to learn how to master a complicated EMR and 2.) Give more physicians the opportunity to practice telemedicine. Telemedicine Jobs has a three step process for consulting with a patient.

1. Medical Record Retrieval and Review- Whereby the patient fills out a complete history and physical form with chief complaint. Physician retrieves and reviews the patients H&P form via email. (Subjective and Objective)

2. Physician Tele-consult- Physician contacts patient via telephone and email to review and consult patients chief complaint. (Assessment)

3. Prescription(s) and/or Recommendations- Physician prescribes and/or makes recommendations. A hard copy prescription is faxed or called in to the patients pharmacy. (Plan)
