While the global community may view the COVID-19 pandemic as a worldwide social, economic, and political impasse, the telemedicine system thinks of it as a blessing in disguise. Since the first case reported, medical providers across America have had to devise real-time remote access methods to attend to patients despite not meeting one-on-one to contain the spread. Now more than ever, telepathic medicine is proving to be the best thing to happen to both caregivers and patients alike.
A while ago, the Trump administration decided to lift the ban on legislative and regulatory restrictions to increase remote medical care. While its design reduces medical and mental services costs to increase patient satisfaction, the pandemic’s adverse effects on US citizens have caused the administration to improve telehealth. But will telemedicine be sustainable even after the epidemic, or will the regulatory restrictions be reinstated?
What it takes for telemedicine to thrive even after the pandemic
Telepath medicine is a complex initiative that can only thrive when specific conditions are taken into consideration. Since more than 18 million Americans lack access to high-speed broadband, the vulnerable populations may not benefit from telemedicine. Therefore, telepathic sessions can only be successful aspects such as high-speed internet between patients and providers need to be on their top priority.
They should also train patients on how to operate specific apps to access their caregivers. Again new fraud detection methods must come into play to uphold patient-doctor confidentiality. And since minorities are more susceptible to the virus and deaths, adoptions of such policies could be their only chance of survival.
Telemedicine is significant in filling the gap between the poor and the wealthy. People living with chronic infections, including diabetes, asthma, bronchitis, and many others, can benefit from the Coronavirus Aid, Relied, and Economic Security. The bottom line is that the COVID-19 telehealth program will address all Americans’ medical needs regardless of their age, gender, socio-economic statuses, and religion.
