Disease relevance of Telemedicine


Psychiatry related information on Telemedicine

  • Eligible subjects were screened for dementia using the 7-Minute Screen. Veterans who screened positive and consented to participate in the study received an in-person neuropsychiatric evaluation at baseline, and then both telemedicine and in-person examinations for dementia conducted by experienced geriatric psychiatrists [6].
  • The reliability of the center, which provides telemedicine, tele-education, and telecounseling services, was tested by comparing assessment via our system with in-person assessment, and the clinical outcome was assessed by rating the changes of behavioral symptoms [7].
  • Patients in the telemedicine group were younger (p< 0.005), more likely to have Medicaid insurance (p = 0.009), and more likely be taking hydroxyurea (p = 0.003) than patients in the control encounter group [8].

High impact information on Telemedicine

  • We also review the potential future use of fundal image analysis in telemedicine [9].
  • CONCLUSIONS: Real-time telemedicine transmission and feedback of information about blood glucose results with nurse support is feasible and acceptable to patients, but to significantly improve glycemic control, access to real-time decision support for medication dosing and changes in diet and exercise may be required [10].
  • Telemedicine for epilepsy: a useful contribution [11].
  • The General Agreement on Trade in Services (GATS), created under the auspices of the World Trade Organization, aims to regulate measures affecting international trade in services-including health services such as health insurance, hospital services, telemedicine, and acquisition of medical treatment abroad [12].
  • Strabismus examination by telemedicine [13].

Chemical compound and disease context of Telemedicine

  • In the present paper, a multi-agent system is proposed, which can be integrated in the home care telemedicine system that was developed in the context of the Citizen Health System (CHS) European project, functioning as a contact center for diabetic and congestive heart failure patients [14].

Biological context of Telemedicine

  • In the future, telemedicine systems in Taiwan are expected to combine the Internet and broadband CATV, ADSL, and DBS networking to connect clinics, hospitals, insurance organizations, and public health administrations; and, finally, to extend to every household [15].
  • Intervention participants receive a home telemedicine unit that provides synchronous videoconferencing with a project-based nurse, electronic transmission of home fingerstick glucose and blood pressure data, and Web access to a project Web site [16].

Associations of Telemedicine with chemical compounds

  • Volunteer groups led by the Tokai University School of Medicine and the Telemedicine Society of Japan (a Non-Governmental Organization) worked from 1992 to 1996 to successfully develop a medical network spanning the Asia Pacific region using the ETS-V Satellite [17].
  • Forward and store telemedicine using Motion Pictures Expert Group: a novel approach to pediatric tele-echocardiography [18].
  • Medical personnel reported generally positive attitudes about telemedicine technologies and the telemedicine process in TRICARE Region 9 [19].
  • In July 1997, telemedicine services were established for two islands, Procida and Ischia, in the Bay of Naples [20].
  • The feasibility of dobutamine stress echocardiography in the emergency department with telemedicine interpretation [21].

Gene context of Telemedicine

  • Telemedicine including tele-home care in the 21st century will use the Internet and digital HDTV (high-definition TV) technology for information and data management interchangeably both at domestic and global levels in the medical environment [22].
  • Telemedicine and the ATA [23].
  • Telemedicine has potential to increase the use of tissue plasminogen activator (t-PA) for ischemic stroke and is increasingly offered to provide stroke expertise to remote and underserved areas [24].
  • Data were transmitted to Everest Base Camp (elevation 17,800 feet) and retransmitted to Yale University via telemedicine [25].
  • A programme management model for the Nova Scotia telemedicine network [26].
