Broadband important tool for telemedicine advancement
A key component to the future, widespread deployment of telemedicine services to remote and homebound patients is broadband. For those patients in rural areas with broadband and telemedicine access, enormous cost savings can be realized by the reduction of hospitalizations and readmissions, and provides patients with access to important medical information, which would otherwise be out of reach. Recently, the healthcare industry has been bolstered by a rejuvenated telemedicine push, as telemedicine tools and services have become more affordable and available.
This is a hot topic for many in both the broadband and telemedicine communities. “Access to high-capacity broadband is quickly reshaping the medical industry,” said Drew Clark, Executive Director of Broadband Illinois at a recent Broadband Telemedicine event. “New, innovative applications are allowing doctors and nurses to serve their patients like never before,” said Clark. According to John Jennings, AVP/CTO at Trinity Video Communications, “the continued rollout of broadband connectivity to smaller, rural communities will be of great benefit to the patient and today’s healthcare providers, who are challenged with providing healthcare services anytime, anywhere.”
