How Telehealth Supports Surgical Care

The process of treating a patient with surgery can involve a lengthy and difficult process. Surgery for patients requires many steps from pre-planning, preparation, the surgery itself, and post-surgical care. The use of telehealth can be beneficial to both, patients undergoing surgery, and to physicians.

Pre-surgical routines are rigorous and can help to strongly improve patient preparedness. Prior to non-emergency surgeries, physicians need to make sure that their patients are well informed and prepared for their operation. Telehealth can help as a way to easily keep patients informed without taking the time and journey for an in-person consultation. Particularly when it comes to pre-operation restrictions such as beneficial nutrition or medications. The use of telehealth solutions for contact between physicians is also useful for the sharing of digital images and getting quick consultations from specialists and fellow physicians to properly plan a complicated surgery.

Although there may be little for telehealth to involved in during the surgery at this point of time, there is still a use for it. This use is in the collaboration of multiple surgical teams when there is a lacking specialist. This is incredibly helpful in remote areas or disaster relief medical units.

Post-operation healthcare may benefit even more from telehealth solutions. Post discharge, patients may still find it difficult to travel to their check-ups. Telehealth can assist with this because, why travel and be stuck waiting when they can consult physicians from the comfort of their own home? There are numerous studies that conclude that telehealth post-operation consultations are highly beneficial, particularly for their ability to avoid unnecessary visits and the assessment of localized complications.
