Due to COVID-19 across the globe, healthcare providers are facing a significant problem: Attending a new patient with a cough or fever to a clinic, welcoming other infected patients, may affect their resources.
Luckily, healthcare providers today have some great options to better connect doctors with patients so medical care is being taken by stay-at-home orders.
One of them is the video conferencing platform. Video conferencing has gained a great user-base in almost all domains, including healthcare.
The World Health Organization (WHO) refers to telemedicine as “healing from a distance“. It is the use of telecommunications technology and information technologies to provide remote clinical services to patients. Physicians use telemedicine for the transmission of digital imaging, video consultations, and remote medical diagnosis.
