Telemedicine describes the remote medical support that the patients receive from physicians for their health. Telehealth, on the other hand, covers all subjects such as patient education, diagnosis, treatment, raising awareness about health issues, and includes mobile health as well as telemedicine. Preventive medicine describes practices and approaches to prevent undesirable situations and complications before, during, or after the occurrence of diseases.
Primary care providers, who practice preventive medicine most intensively, also frequently exercise telehealth practices. Costeffectiveness, data security, addressing the lack of education of patients and doctors, redesigning computer systems in terms of ease of use, making necessary legal regulations, and simplifying bureaucratic duties create concerns for physicians and users.
Since physical contact with the patient is not possible, communication between the doctor and the patient should be maintained simultaneously through technological methods. Therefore, the existing infrastructure, internet network, and hospital data system should be both fast, and near-perfect. Telemedicine may be a very good alternative for patients, assuming that healthcare institutions are largely concerned with pandemic patients, or that the risk of Covid-19 has not yet been eliminated in hospitals.
