Gradual development in Telemedicine achieved the needs of patients in rural areas which saved the time of travel, cost and witnessed a vast improvement in quality Physician engagement, Infrastructure, Sustainability. However, telemedicine could considerably show the impact on the entire healthcare industry in urban, community, international and even global settings. Administrative team may see the value in the expensive, possibly grueling and manner of telemedicine application. It would be a bit difficult for some hospital or health system executives to see the value proposition as every patient or every payor is not paying for telemedicine services. Only, through Telemedicine technology it is possible to consult a physician and patients acquire treatment miles away and offer specialists who do not live or work in the area.


Track-8: Personalized eHealth

Personalized e-Health is a healthcare ideal accentuating the systematic use of context information about an individual patient to optimize the patient's preventative and therapeutic care. A widespread ICT solutions for patient self-management includes medical sensor-enabled remote monitoring, smart-phone enabled data aggregation, medical situation awareness and analysis (risk classification, root cause analysis and risk triggers), and Diagnostics using Biosensors for converged disease risk management and patient behavior assistance toward prevention care or prediction of diseases for better disease risk control. Personalized eHealth market is becoming a significant socio-economic challenge around the world. For example, US alone spent about US$2.6 Trillion in 2008 (17% of GDP). Major world developed countries (US, EU and Japan) are promoting a new healthcare model, called personalized healthcare, to control the cost while improving citizens’ health through use of Information and Communications Technology (ICT) and care focus from treatment to prevention. Fundamentals in eHealth personalization, Personalized eHealth business models and eHealth and classical health networks included in the personalized e-Health indicate that business-to-consumers e-commerce models require real-time data that enable users to make informative decisions. E-health models have been categorized into four major frameworks (portals, connectivity, business-to-business, and business-to-consumer) and numerous others; provide patient–consumers with diverse capabilities including access to treatment and diagnostic information, online purchases of prescription drugs, and even personalization of health care plans that are enabled via employee-defined contribution plans.


Track-9: Advantages and dis advantages of Telemedicine

Many patients feel uncomfortable to go to hospital or doctor-chamber. Mobile Telemedicine creates communication among patients & healthcare professionals maintaining convenience & commitment. Moreover, through Legal issues involved in Telemedicine the medical information and images are kept confidential and safely transferred from one place to another. So, people can believe this system and feel comfort to seek help from telemedicine. Implementation of Telemedicine in health care helped the patients residing in inaccessible areas or isolated regions. Patients can receive clinical healthcare from their home without arduous travel to the hospital. Remote patient monitoring, homecare applications through computer or tablet or phone technology has reduced outpatient visits. Now doctors can verify prescription or supervise drug oversight. Furthermore, the home-bound patients can seek medical-help without moving to clinic through ambulance. Thus, cost of health care has been reduced. Virtual clinical treatment decreases human interaction among the Health professionals and patient’s role and attitude towards e-Health that increases the risk of error in clinical services, if the service is delivered by inexperienced professional. Moreover, confidential medical information can be leaked through faulty electronic system. Applications of Telemedicine facilitates health education, as the primary level healthcare professionals can observe the working procedure of healthcare-experts in their respective fields and the experts can supervise the works of the novice and eliminates the possibility of transmitting infectious diseases between patients and healthcare professionals. Ethical issues involved in Telemedicine require tough legal regulation to prevent unauthorized and illegal service providers in this sector.

Technology has made it easy for doctors to detect various diseases. But it is restricted only to people in urban areas but Low cost Telemedicine made easy for people in rural areas with simple and standard healthcare infrastructure. Rapid growth in the availability of low-power, hand-held medical monitoring devices advanced the Telemedicine for poor and reduces travel costs by both parties for consultation, diagnosis, and follow up is the largest benefit. Steps that has to be taken to reach Telemedicine to common people include create technology-neutral insurance payment policies, Adopt a standard definition for telehealth, Fund research to continually improve the quality and lower the cost of tele-health programs, Promote interoperability among state prescription drug monitoring programs. E-Health economics concerned with issues related to efficiency, effectiveness, value and behavior in the production and consumption of health and health care.





Global Summit on Telemedicine & e-Health

August 17-18, 2015 at Houston, Texas, USA


Telemedicine is a rapidly developing application of clinical medicine where medical information is transferred through the phone or the Internet and sometimes other networks for the purpose of consulting, and sometimes remote medical procedures or examinations. It may be as simple as two health professionals discussing a case over the telephone, or as complex as using satellite technology and video-conferencing equipment to conduct a real-time consultation between medical specialists in two different countries. Telemedicine generally refers to the use of communications and information technologies for the delivery of clinical care. It is the use of telecommunication and information technologies in order to provide clinical health care at a distance. It helps eliminate distance barriers and can improve access to medical services that would often not be consistently available in distant rural communities.
