Telemedicine refers to the practice of providing care for patients remotely through the use of telecommunication technologies. In simple terms, it is making treatment available to patients using the telephone and internet. This, in turn, makes healthcare more accessible, cost-effective, and increases patient engagement due to real-time information sharing.
Data from the World Health Organization (WHO) reveals that Nigeria’s physician-to-patient ratio is four doctors per 10,000.
With Telemedicine, a solution has been provided to reduce the shortage of doctors as the platform not only allows access to doctors around the country but also from anywhere in the world.
The number of patient visits to medical facilities has been drastically reduced with the help of telemedicine. Telemedicine has drastically cut down the time it takes to see qualified doctors to minutes. The technology basically brings the doctor to the comfort of the home saving time and money.
