The application of video conferencing in the medical field
Contact Person : Echo Yang
In today's rapid development of network technology, traditional communication methods cannot achieve the effect of "face-to-face" communication. On the one hand, it cannot meet people's growing demand for all-round communication; on the other hand, as people's requirements for social communication are getting higher and higher, economic activities are becoming more active, and the demand for real-time communication between multiple parties is also increasing. Therefore, it has become the demand of various industries to make full use of advanced computer and network technology to carry out network-based remote video conference applications to achieve all-round communication of audio, video and data between multiple parties.
Telemedicine consultation breaks through the traditional medical model
my country has a vast territory and a large population, and the medical level presents an extremely unbalanced state. Doctors with high technical level and hospitals with advanced medical equipment are generally located in large and medium cities.
However, the traditional medical communication system is limited due to its backward functions, and it is difficult to achieve a full range of remote communication and diagnosis and treatment. As a result, advanced medical knowledge and medical technology cannot be quickly disseminated, and medical resources cannot serve more patients.
The family members of patients in remote areas can only send the patient to a higher-level hospital for expert consultation, while some people with poor economic conditions can only wait for death in despair, because of the huge amount of transportation expenses, accompanying expenses for family members, hospitalization and medical expenses and other expenses. It will increase the burden on patients and their families, and even consume all the savings of an ordinary family; in addition, the bumpy road may cause secondary damage to the already fragile patients.
Therefore, nowadays, people place great hope on the popularization and development of telemedicine.
Telemedicine is the product of the combination of network technology and medical technology. It usually includes: remote diagnosis, expert consultation, information services, online inspection and remote communication. It is based on computer and network communication. Data and remote video and audio information transmission, storage, query, comparison, display and sharing.
The rapid development of modern medicine has higher requirements on the level of medical and health personnel, requiring them to master all kinds of medical knowledge and information, then how to realize the sharing of medical literature resources, and how to enhance the continuing education of various medical and health personnel , has become a more pressing requirement.
Video conferencing can effectively solve the above problems, effectively combining computer network technology and modern medical technology, the telemedicine consultation system can obtain consultation from well-known medical experts for patients in remote areas, and save time and money for patients.
Telemedicine consultation to enhance communication between doctors
Due to the large geographical gap in China, uneven distribution of infrastructure, and very limited medical and health resources, medical personnel in many branches and remote areas cannot receive sufficient business training. The intelligent medical information service platform constructed by the network video conference system It can provide many application functions such as hospital digitalization, remote consultation, remote digital collaborative medical treatment, remote surgical guidance, remote medical education, and medical video database for remote medical institutions.
Telemedicine consultation, innovative realization of medical value
For online video conferences, you can enter the video conference mode at any time through mobile phones, computers, and tablets. As long as there is a network, you can start a smooth video call. As long as it is not an emergency, doctors can make a preliminary judgment based on telemedicine consultation, with the patient's description and past medical history. Through remote video, the doctor can directly recommend whether to continue the examination or recuperate at home. When the doctor's initial diagnosis is unclear, we will register and conduct an in-depth examination.
The telemedicine consultation platform constructed using the network video conferencing system provides real-time audio and video, data collaboration, high-definition picture transmission and collaborative viewing between hospitals and between patients and experts, ensuring that experts can better judge and locate The patient's condition has been realized in a real sense of remote "seeing, hearing, and inquiring."
Last week, the first people's Hospital of Foshan City, Guangdong Province, China, together with Foshan Maternal and Child Health Hospital, Foshan Traditional Chinese Medicine, and Chancheng District Central Hospital and other hospitals to build a "smart hospital", was reported by the media, which is eye-opening. . It has been seen that face recognition authentication, self-service calling for inspections, pipeline delivery of samples, cross-department sharing of beds, and online follow-up through APP have all been realized one by one. In the era of mobile Internet, what has the smart hospital changed?
Smart hospitals will transform clinical decision-making and health care. Deep learning of big data and artificial intelligence can provide opinions for doctors in diagnosis and treatment. In addition, the use of big data and artificial intelligence technology can scientifically predict the occurrence of diseases in groups and individuals, achieve "preventive treatment", and reduce costs for medical services.
The launch of smart hospitals is part of smart cities. Building a smart hospital will not only change the service model of the hospital, but also promote the wisdom of home life and community life. The combination of medical care and elderly care will therefore expand the space and content of services, and integrate it into the daily life of the elderly at home and in the community, covering before, during and after consultation. The elderly can be first diagnosed in the community when they are sick, and they can be referred according to the specific situation, and different modes of combining medical care and nursing can be selected. This platform can also cooperate with third-party elderly canteens to directly push the nutrition matching system to the elderly canteens to improve the quality of nursing care for the elderly.
To sum up, smart hospitals actually bring simplicity to people and leave complexity to the system. At present, smart hospitals pose challenges to the existing hospital informatization infrastructure, and the reform of hospital informatization system structure is imperative. The hospital will realize real-time perception, prediction, analysis, decision-making, optimization and intervention for the whole business and the whole process, and open up the fields of elderly care and rehabilitation, pharmaceutical supply chain, Internet services, etc., to form a smart medical ecosystem.
