How Telehealth Supports Cardiology

Cardiology specialists conduct diagnosis and perform treatment for heart disorders.  The heart being the organ that pumps blood throughout the human body, you can imagine the importance of having access to cardiologists. The use of telehealth services in cardiology is not a new concept. In fact, in Italy, telemedicine and cardiology have gone hand in hand since the 1990s. Emergencies of the heart often require quick attention. For those who have chronic conditions, telemonitoring devices can be necessary for treatment and monitoring the patient’s wellbeing.

In this digital age, patients can be monitored remotely to manage hypertension or chronic heart problems and implanted with devices, such as pacemakers or cardioverter defibrillators, for their heart. These devices that allow patients to self-monitor go hand in hand with telehealth consultations. These services can be incredibly helpful in creating an alternative method of treatment and lowering the number of in-person visits between patients and their cardiologists. This is an increasingly asked for service during the COVID-19 pandemic by both patients and doctors. Patients would like to limit their exposure to others during these times, and doctors will have more in-person time for vital cases.

Telehealth in cardiology is likely to be a permanent alternative even after the pandemic, as it becomes a normalized practice. Especially since it allows people in remote regions to get the attention they need right from where they are. Doctors will be able to inform the patients to make an in-person visit only when they feel it is required. Take for example, a cardiac surgeon just needing to check if a surgical scar is healing. There will be no need for a trip, that could take potentially hours in travel and waiting, for a 15-minute appointment.

Global Telehealth Exchange (GTHE) is a secure and HIPAA compliant solution that can assist cardiologists with treating and monitoring their patients. With access to cardiologists worldwide, and the ability to securely share information, patients using GTHE will have no problems getting the help they need from anywhere in the world. Having all this information in one place can help cardiologists to diagnose and advise treatment options more efficiently.

GTHE has functions that will assist a cardiologist in treating heart disorders. Using the “How Are You Feeling Today” (HAYFT) Card allows them to easily check in on their patients’ wellbeing. The HAYFT Card is a comprehensive feedback tool that allows cardiologists to stay in touch and build a relationship with their patients. Care.Groups can be created by the healthcare provider allowing to easily organize patients into groups according to provider’s custom configurations.

GTHE offers many benefits to healthcare providers including:
