Question Description

Telemedicine can be extremely beneficial for people living in

isolated regions and is currently being applied in virtually all medical

domains. To address major health issues related to affordability,

access, and quality of care, healthcare providers need to consider

telemedicine as a reliable option when access to traditional medicine is

difficult and out of reach. Healthcare providers, however, must

consider legal and ethical issues when planning, designing, and

implementing telemedicine. Key among these issues is those of patient

confidentiality, privacy, data security, and transmission.

  • How does telemedicine differ from the traditional medicine?
  • What are other legal or ethical issues involved in telemedicine?
  • Which of these issues, in your opinion, will be the most difficult to address?
  • What technologies or infrastructure are necessary for the successful practice of telemedicine?
  • What obstacles can prevent healthcare providers from seeing telemedicine as a reliable option, even when access to traditional medicine is difficult or out of reach?

To support your work, use your course and textbook readings and also use the South University Online Library. As in all assignments, cite your sources in your work and provide references for the citations in APA format.

traditional medicine, telemedicine allows for rapid retinal imaging without dilation in the
primary care clinics. Additionally, unlike in traditional medicine, in screening patients for
diabetic retinopathy, telemedicine stands out as the most effective way when providing
