Telemedicine: Risks and Common Problems
Many patients like Telemedicine because they do not have to spend time and money on travel to see a healthcare provider in person. Also, they can see a provider who they might not be able to see otherwise.
Technology can make getting health care easy, but there can also be some problems:
- If there are equipment or Internet problems, then your diagnosis or treatment could be delayed.
- Records or images that are taken and sent may be of poor quality. This can delay or cause problems with your diagnosis or treatment.
- The records sent for review before the session may not be complete. If this happens, then it may be hard for the Telemedicine provider to use his or her best judgment about your health problem. For instance, you could react to a drug or have an allergic response if the provider does not have all of the information that he or she needs.
- There could be problems with Internet safety (“hackers”). If this happens, then your medical records may not stay private.
- If there is a technology problem, the information from your session may be lost. This would be outside the control of your doctor and Telemedicine provider.
- Without a “hands-on ” exam, it may be hard to diagnose your problem.
- You may still require an ‘in-person’ office visit if the provider deems a personal visit is needed to help diagnose or treat a medical problem
