Telecardiology is an oldest and well developed form of telemedicine. Telecardiology practices offer interpretations of echocardiogram, electrocardiogram, and images. It also provides a second opinion, follow-up consultations, online specialist consultations and a real time video consultations with the help of telecommunications and advanced medical equipment to provide cardiovascular care to the patients located at distance.
Even today, cardiovascular diseases are the major cause of deaths worldwide. Cardiac patients living in remote, rural areas unable to access emergency care lose their lives. This barrier between the heart patients and medical professionals was removed by telecardiology. People living in suburban areas in critical health conditions can connect to the specialists through a telecardiology network.
Routine and primary care is conveniently provided by the telecardiology practice. It can accurately diagnose patients who require emergency admissions, which increases the chances of patient survival. It also helps in decision making of general practitioners. Many studies showed that there is a substantial decrease in hospital admissions and duration of hospitalisation because of telecardiology, saving cost and time of treatments.
Recently introduced home care services and remote patient monitoring with implanted pacemakers has significantly reduced the death of heart failure patients.
Scarcity of paediatric cardiologists and specialised surgeons is overcome by telecardiology. Out of hour support offered by these services relieved many top hospitals from staffing problems.
Due to its reliable and efficient services the hospitals, clinics, and other emergency care practices are moving towards telecardiology. It is gaining support from health care practices, professionals and patients because of its multifaceted services. Further development of telecardiology services is essential to cope with the increasing trend of cardiovascular diseases.
