What exactly happens in a Tele Medicine Consultation?
The patient or relative contacts the Parvathy Tele Medicine and requests for a Specialist consultation. The local Telemedicine administrator fixes an appointment with the concerned specialist and informs the patient.
Patient details and reports like X-Ray, ECG, Blood investigations, CTScan, Angiogram, ECHO pictures etc. can be sent electronically to the Specialist at the Parvathy hospital.
After the specialist (doctor) goes through this information, he/she talks to the patient and interacts with the patient remotely, through video conferencing. X-ray images, CT scan, MRI images can all be digitally manipulated by the consultant at his end. Coronary Angiograms, Echo Cardiograms and biopsy slides, can be seen by the Teleconsultants, at his end. After a provisional tele diagnosis is made, the opinion of the specialist is communicated to the patient at the remote end Vitrually. A prescription is also electronically sent to the patient. If further reviews are required, the above procedure is repeated.
