Telemedicine has appeared in the money-saving ability to hospital operations, improved patient safety, and given more people access to healthcare service among other benefits. In use for a variety of years, it’s here to remain as an important tool for inpatient care.
At Marin General Hospital, we've been assimilating telemedicine into our patient care operations a few times. For instance, we use two-way analysis with off-site neurologists for rapid calculations of patients with stroke symptoms; an off-site eICU as backup monitoring of our ICU patients; as a teleconference tool between patients and their families here in Marin and specialists in pediatric diabetes at UCSF; and as how to supply two-way teleconferencing translation devices to our non-English speaking patients in order that they are better ready to clearly communicate and receive information about their care.
With the opening in 2020 of our new state-of-the-art hospital, the utilization of telemedicine at Marin General Hospital goes to require an enormous breakthrough.
Our first patients will find themselves getting advantage from one among the first innovative and practical uses of telemedicine—“virtual presence,” the primary use of the technology to the in-hospital patient experience.
Each patient room within the new hospital building is going to be installed with security cameras, large TV screens on the wall facing the bed, and tablet devices at each bedside. lecture your caregiver team is going to be as close and straightforward as pressing a button on your bedside device. As a patient, you'll either initiate or accept, when convenient, a routine two-way video call from your nurse, or schedule a video session from the pharmacist ensuring you understand the way to use your medications.
