Telemedicine as a Flagship Project for Emerging Markets
Step 1. Patient comes to mobile health vehicle for health check and diagnosis.
Paramedics take basic tests and examine patients condition, then they input patient’s condition and test results in database.
Step 2. Doctors in medical centers immediately receive data and patient’s results from database in the real-time via online infrastructure.
They analyse symptoms and test results and form diagnosis and recommendations with a treatment plan.
Step 3. Doctors’ recommendations come back to paramedics via online infrastructure that indicate the necessary treatment for the patient.
Moreover, a special infrastructure for secure storage and transmission of data will be developed for patients’ medical history.
The telemedicine project is focused primarily on developing countries as many citizens of such countries usually do not have access to medical services either because of the distant location of hospitals or because of a high percentage of economically underdeveloped populations. The ideal solution may be to create mobile health vehicles that will provide a wide range of services to ensure the proper diagnosis and adequate follow-up of patients with specific medical needs, referral of critical cases to advanced care, and detection of possible outbreaks of diseases. With the help of computers, data science and IT-Technologies, all patients’ tests results will be transferred to medical centers where specialized doctors will decide on the further treatment of the patient and provide the necessary recommendations.
