Medical Tourism Adopts Telemedicine Due to Lack of Care
(Monarch Beach, CA) – Tele-Medical Tourism company, the world leader in Tourism Telemedicine announces a unique solution for medical travelers. Tele-Medical Tourism now provides the critical follow-up care patients need, once returning home from surgery overseas.
These medical travelers often find a reluctance of their own local, US based physicians to provide follow-up care or management, after a patient returns undergoing procedures overseas. Often times it is a matter of simple hubris, however as well as caution.
Most physicians claim their unwillingness to treat these patients, is a matter of liability and perhaps there is merit in that. The US based physician was not involved in the surgical procedure and complications may arise from the original procedure and not the follow-up management. It is not difficult to imagine potential malpractice scenarios emerging.
Tele-Medical Tourism Company operates a proprietary international HL-7 EHR (Electronic Health Record System) which is used both by the attending physician overseas and by US Based physicians providing follow-up care.
Having the original SOAP notes, images, lab reports, procedure notes and follow-up directives, the Telemedicine physician is enabled and provides personalized and precise care when needed.
The Tele-Medical Tourism Company is the first and only system of its kind in the world. Doctors and hospitals from India to Brazil and Mexico share the mutli-lingual EHR system to log and note all patient records; this assures competent care once the patient returns home to the USA, because Tele-Medical Tourism Doctors use the same platform.
Consultations are done through phone, computer or video. Costs for this 24 hour service are about what one would pay to see any Primary Care provider. This solution is now a significant driver in the Medical Tourism industry.
