In the Telemedicine world we are starting to look forward at what will happen in the new year!

“New investments will be made in technologies that reach into the home and enhance care team communication. 2016 saw an acceleration of telemedicine/telehealth. 2017 will see exponential growth.”

“Telemedicine is hard to define. It could be real-time video teleconferencing between clinicians (a consult), between a patient and clincian (a visit), or group to group (tumor board discussion). It could be the transmission of a static photograph, such as the poisonous mushroom/plant teleconsultation I do 900 times per year. It could be secure texting to coordinate patient care.” Said Dr. John D. Halamka on MedCityNews.

I think right now with all of the cloud based solutions we are seeing a huge growth that will only get better with time. Technology is something that will continue to grow and with that growth, Telemedicine will come out on top!
