How Telehealth Supports Immunology

Immunology specialists must tackle a wide array of physiological issues that can affect the functions of a patient’s immune system from small irritants to deadly ailments. There are many immunological disorders that are commonly seen including allergies, immune deficiencies, autoimmune disorders, hypersensitivities, and even transplant complication. It is a speciality that requires not just a wide array of knowledge, but the ability to act quickly as well. 

Telehealth and telemedicine provide many benefits that immunologists can take advantage of, from low to high-risk situations. One of the most common reasons for patients to reach out to immunologists is allergies. The ability for telehealth to provide convenient continuity of care for allergy sufferers has been proven to be successful, as demonstrated by well-known medical group Mount Sinai’s offerings of telemedicine consultations. This is particularly true when it comes to providing follow up appointments after the patient comes in for the initial allergy test. There is no real need for a patient or physician to spend time waiting on lengthy follow-ups unless an emergency occurs. Even then, being able to explain or even show symptoms through video can save a lengthy expensive trip to a hospital. This continuity of care can also be helpful in monitoring more severe cases, such as transplant recovery and autoimmune disorders.

Telemedicine does not just link healthcare professionals to patients, but to each other and healthcare organizations as well. It allows for easy communication of information. Having a channel to other healthcare professionals, you can consult with other specialists or even easily make referrals, with permission and consent from the patient. This allows for global treatment options for patients and organizations providing care in hard to reach or economically difficult regions.
