Telemedicine appointments have increased by 2400% in the US, and England is reporting a 3 year wait time for dentists. Given the strain on the healthcare infrastructure and personnel and the virality of the pandemic, Telemedicine (Telehealth) solutions have become a mainstay. However, while larger healthcare providers have adopted scalable Telehealth solutions, small and independent practitioners have to contend with ad-hoc solutions.
The still prevailing wait times indicate a significant opportunity for telemedicine solutions that can help bridge this gap. While the entire healthcare ecosystem is in the frontline of battling the pandemic, the technology and specifically the open source community can help alleviate access to healthcare through telemedicine solutions.
Telemedicine broadly covers aspects of using smartphones and tablets in providing video conferencing consultations, varying degrees of remote patient monitoring, communication, payer integration, pharmacy integration, nursing, and others. More advanced solutions cover teletrauma, emergency care, telesurgery, amongst others.
