3 Benefits of Sleep Telemedicine
You may have heard of telemedicine and you may have heard of sleep medicine, but chances are that you have not heard of sleep telemedicine. As the name suggests, it is a way for patients to receive professional sleep medicine advice via a trained medical doctor, qualified in this field.
Telemedicine itself is nothing new, as it was officially accepted by the WHO in the 1970’s. In today’s busy society, it is more relevant than ever. Therefore, we have compiled a handy list of the 3 main benefits you will experience from reaching out to an online sleep doctor.
1.Improved Access To Healthcare
Sleep telemedicine services use innovative and revolutionary techniques to improve access to high quality, patient-centered care. The American Academy of Sleep Medicine states “sleep telemedicine services have the capability to revolutionize sleep care, allowing you to provide care for patients previously out of reach.”
Sleep telemedicine means that people with sleep disorders can easily get medical advice and treatment from specialists all over the country without having to leave their homes. This is particularly important for patients who are too ill to travel to a medical center, for frequent travelers, or for those who live in rural, secluded areas.
2.Reduced Waiting Time For Appointments
The AAST states that one of the key benefits of telemedicine is its ability to give patients reduced waiting times for appointments. At Sliiip we aim to provide our patients with exactly that.
This reduction comes from the fact that patients get real-time video consultations and electronic follow-ups, which are much easier to organize and can be conducted in any location. Furthermore, empowering patients to conduct a sleep study online from the comfort of their own home means that the doctor has more time to consult patients that are in urgent need of it. Thus, since patients have less need to make appointments, the ones that do need them can benefit from shorter queues.
A study published by the NCBI found that the “Delivery of health services via real-time video communication was cost-effective for home care”. More specifically, they found that the savings associated with telemedicine are estimated at over $4 billion. The cost reductions come from the massively reduced travel costs, amount of lost hours of work, removing the need to visit a clinic, and cheaper medical services.
However, the reduced costs DO NOT mean reduced quality. Our online sleep doctor is revolutionizing health care as he provides high-quality services in a way that doesn’t interfere with your daily life.
