There are still a lot of difficult problems in telemedicine practice
In the field of global medical health services, the development of telemedicine has been paid more and more attention, and its necessity has been fully recognized by many countries or regions. However, in practical applications, telemedicine still faces technical, management, legal and other aspects of the problem, but also need to be resolved by all relevant parties. Telemedicine is literally interpreted as "&ldquo"; remote treatment of ” that is, the use of network communication technologies to expand access to medical care and medical information to improve the patient's healing effect. The lack of medical resources in remote rural areas or areas, telemedicine can realize the sharing of medical resources, while reducing the time and cost of hospital patients halfway. Based on the above advantages, in the past more than 40 years, the rapid development of telemedicine, the expanding range of applications, and the decrease in the diagnosis of differences, improve clinical management and provide health care services and other aspects show amazing potential. As a whole, the development of telemedicine in the world has roughly gone through three stages, which is closely related to the development of network communication technology. The first stage is before the middle of the 1990s, mainly based on telephone, cable television network, the technology of microwave and satellite system technology, only a simple remote consultation and diagnosis, known as the first generation of telemedicine system. In the middle and late 1990s, telemedicine has undergone new changes. Digital communication network, ATM network and satellite wireless communication technology are developing rapidly, and based on this upgrade, it is the second generation telemedicine system. After twenty-first Century, the telemedicine industry was gradually established in the high-speed digital information network, storage and forwarding technology to further development, known as the third generation telemedicine system. Although the telemedicine system has significant development, but in practice, there are still many immature or models, in terms of operational standards, technical standards, laws and regulations are still not perfect, the future needs of hospitals, health departments, hardware and software companies, research institutes and other collaborative solutions.
Next, the next generation telemedicine system will integrate various information systems, network technologies, medical imaging equipment, traditional medical systems, etc., to the development of a new generation of integrated telemedicine system.
In the new generation of integrated telemedicine system, telemedicine will become a new model of health care system in the network environment, and further development of more effective to patients as the center of the diversification of telemedicine services, provides a good inspiration.
However, it is worth mentioning that, as a technology oriented sustainable services, remote medical also need to improve the cost of — — quantitative analysis of profit model, for the remote medical system operation mode optimization, so as to obtain the telemedicine system is the most effective and economical and service.
