Despite all efforts that have been made stroke is a burden and remains one of the most devastating neurological diseases. Treatment of patients on a Stroke Unit improves stroke prognosis and is recommended for all patients with acute stroke. In rural areas population-wide implementation of Stroke Units is extremely challenging. Therefore the Telemedical Project for integrated Stroke Care (TEMPiS) was established in 2003 as a TeleStroke network to overcome this barrier in Southeast Bavaria/Germany. TEMPiS was one of the very early telemedical stroke networks worldwide and was evaluated intensively during its implementation phase between February 2003 and December 2005...

Pain is generally undertreated and there is a need to differentiate and improve access to appropriate pain care. The growing Field of telehealth offers a novel opportunity for pain care, exploiting mainly communicative and pharmacological therapeutic principles. Rationale for telemedicine for the management of chronic pain are the potential to overcome timely, economical, and structural barriers for the access to specialized pain care as well as the general open mindedness of physicians and patients towards this technology...

The telemedical support and networking between health personnel and medical specialists increases the quality of supply also in the prehospital emergency care. Till now only for some tracer diagnosis specifically designed telemedical services were used. However, now a unique holistic telemedicine system, which can be used for the whole emergency spectrum as a supplementary feature has been developed. It can be used for the whole prehospital emergency care. The needfulness and meaningfulness of telemedicine as well as the important structural characteristics in prehospital emergency care are pictured...

Intensive care unit (ICU) telemedicine is one option to improve clinical relevant outcomes in terms of mortality, length of stay and morbidity. Telemedicine combines the advantage of locally available intensive medical care with the shared expertise of specialized centers by data and information exchange. The article describes the organizational and technical feasibility of different options, as well as the effects and limitations of ICU telemedicine.

BACKGROUND: Recent telehealth studies have demonstrated minor impact on patients affected by long-term conditions. The use of technology does not guarantee the compliance required for sustained collection of high-quality symptom and physiological data. Remote monitoring alone is not sufficient for successful disease management. A patient-centred design approach is needed in order to allow the personalisation of interventions and encourage the completion of daily self-management tasks...

Teledermatology is a rapidly expanding niche within telemedicine still in its infancy. It has become increasingly more feasible in recent years with the expansion of information and communication technologies. Here, the authors present the details of their collaboration and propose a model for constructing a teledermatology network. In the year 2014, the authors' Dermatopathology institute in Torrance, California, partnered with Mbingo Baptist Hospital, a tertiary referral center in Cameroon, Africa. During this time, 145 cases were received...

: Telemedicine is a medical application of advanced technology to disease management. This modality may provide benefits also to patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). Different devices and systems are used. The legal problems associated with telemedicine are still controversial. Economic advantages for healthcare systems, though potentially high, are still poorly investigated. A European Respiratory Society Task Force has defined indications, follow-up, equipment, facilities, legal and economic issues of tele-monitoring of COPD patients including those undergoing home mechanical ventilation...

The United States (US) has a large correctional population. However, many incarcerated persons lack access to evidence-based, up-to-date medical care, particularly by subspecialty providers, due to limitations of geography, travel, cost and other resources. The use of telehealth technologies can remove these barriers, increasing access to high quality, multidisciplinary care. Studies have shown that, with telemedicine, timely triage and medical management can be provided across many disciplines, which may lead to improved clinical outcomes and significant cost savings...

Healthcare is changing rapidly, so we must change with the times to develop more efficient, practical, cost-effective and, importantly, high-quality methods to care for patients. We teach medial students that optimal patient care requires face to face interactions, to collect information on patients' history, and the physical examination. However, management of many patients-especially those with chronic diseases-does not always require physical examination. Telemedicine offers an opportunity to take advantage of technology while leveraging the progressive push towards efficiency and value, but also requires the belief that excellent patient care is not always provided in person...

BACKGROUND: Compared with men, women have poorer lipid control. Although potential causes of this disparity have been explored, it is unknown whether patient-centered factors such as satisfaction and confidence contribute. We evaluated (1) whether satisfaction with lipid control and confidence in ability to improve it vary by gender and (2) whether sociodemographic characteristics modify the association. MATERIALS AND METHODS: We evaluated baseline survey responses from the Cardiovascular Intervention Improvement Telemedicine Study, including self-rated satisfaction with cholesterol levels and confidence in controlling cholesterol...

Despite being in existence for over 40 years, the application of telemedicine has lagged significantly in comparison to its generated interest. One detractor has been the immobile design of most historic telemedicine interventions and the relative deficiency of smartphones in the general populace. Recently, the exponential increase in smartphone ownership and familiarity have provided the potential for the development of mobile health (mHealth) interventions that can realistically be mirrored in clinical applications...
