The specialty of endocrinology tackles a wide array of disorders including diabetes, hormone imbalances, thyroid disease, menopause, osteoporosis, infertility, and many more. Endocrinologists largely treat chronic disorders. These treatments are long, and patients often require extended care either from a healthcare provider or to self-care.
Disorders such as diabetes and thyroid disease rely on data-driven care coupled with numerous in-person visits every year. Telehealth can help to cut down the number of in-patient visits required, easing the burden on many patients. The WHO found that at least 8.5% of adults worldwide have suffered from diabetes as far back as 2014. Many of these cases are rising in low- and middle-income countries where accessibility to healthcare may be scarcer. Telehealth can be used not just for treatment but pre-emptively as well to assist in providing dietary and lifestyle assistance.
Patients are getting more and more comfortable with telehealth because of the pandemic and the change to daily life. With many home monitoring technologies being readily available, home care becomes even more viable. Through teleconsultations you can teach patients how to self-monitor and provide accurate data and see first-hand information you need such as medications or nutrition. Many of the disorders that endocrinologists treat may also require the assistance of a team of healthcare providers such as dietitians and certified diabetes care specialists. Having all your healthcare providers on the same telehealth solution streamlines the healthcare journey, even digitally.
