Telemedicine in Latin America, as well as in other continents, is not a practice that has had much success. There is still some mistrust and disbelief in the services provided remotely.
However, it is undeniable that telemedicine would help meet the current demand in the digital era.
It would bring patients and doctors together without the need to spend long hours traveling, while still obtaining all the benefits of medical care. It would offer the opportunity to get in touch, ask questions, and receive answers to problems that require an immediate response. This is valuable for both patients and doctors.
Telemedicine involves services such as monitoring, counseling, and education between doctors and patients, all through secure and private connections. This would undoubtedly allow more people to access top-notch services quickly, safely, comfortably, and above all, timely.
Today, with the current and growing pandemic caused by COVID-19, telemedicine is once again becoming relevant and is even being considered as one of the strongest options to support all those who need advice, alternatives, and specialist consultations without increasing the risks of exposure to the virus. Telemedicine solves problems of travel, overcrowding in hospitals, disease spread, and facilitates the automated recording of cases.
If a few months ago it was unthinkable to provide this type of medical services remotely, today it becomes a first-hand necessity. Just as the need to implement telework and homeschooling has been seen, remote medical practices will be adopted.
