The new report from Continua Health Alliance is devoted to the Innovation Working Group (IWG) in Asian Experiences.
Very good summary entitle: Roadmap for telemedicine. That include advises of how to organize a telemedicine project as well as some principles to know.
We miss several things that I will explain you:
1.- The Health 4.0 concept of anytime-anywhere-anything interaction with all innovations of the IoE, KoD (knowledge on Demand), KBL (knowledge base learning), AI etc…
2.- To see all new technological standards such as Bluetooth v.4.1 capable to behave as a hub and periferal, FHIR to substitute HL7….
4.- The Open & Modular trend for DIY (do it yourself)
3.- Principles as Gobal Health-care & delocalization of health care with premises totally different from USA licence recognition, since when you teleconsult what you are doing is a “transportation of the patient electronically where the consultant is placed”, therefore no other licence for practice medicine is required since the consultant is licenced in his original place.
4.- Introduction using the new technologies about the Minimum Requirement for a Telehealth with QoC (Quality of care) in each medical speciality.
and finally the most important
5.- Say NO to bureaucrats & YES to direct care, start a value-based healthcare (VBH) founded on patient sucess.
But I understant that maybe a Roadmap is not the the place to introduce those item. In any case, it should be read.
