This book is available now in hard copy and soon as an e-book. What is it about?
- Canada was an early adopter of telehealth and e-health due to the large distances that separated people from medical advice and health professionals far away.
- Today, telehealth is more than simply connecting patients and providers over large distances:
- Using different systems, telehealth combined with e-health,
- facilitates emergency rescues and access to information,
- permits ongoing monitoring at home for patients with chronic diseases,
- helps aging health care consumers live at home independently,
- shortens wait times to treatment and diagnosis
- increases personal awareness with reference to healthy lifestyles
- permits digital images to be stored, retrieved and transferred across the miles
- accelerates access to advice, information and care.
- Through many examples - from emergency rescues at sea to tele-counselling , the book shows the impact telehealth is having on patients, and health care professionals worldwide.
- The examples and stories in this book will open the reader's eyes and surprise even knowledgeable and experienced practitioners.
