Yeditepe Healthcare Institutions launch a telemedicine program to create a better experience for international patients
Telemedicine is the remote delivery of healthcare services and clinical information using telecommunications technology.
Today, the use of telemedicine has spread rapidly and is now becoming integrated into the ongoing operations of hospitals, specialty departments, home health agencies, private physician offices as well as consumer’s homes and workplaces.
Telemedicine is the natural evolution of healthcare in the digital world.
Yeditepe Healthcare Institutions are the first foundation hospital group in Turkey to use video technology to connect physicians in clinical settings and patients in their homes or other remote locations. In addition to enhancing patient care, telemedicine also has benefits for researchers, providing investigators with broader access to patients and making it easier for patients to participate in studies. Therefore, Yeditepe University Healthcare Institutions have formed a joint steering committee in cooperation with Yeditepe University to coordinate and centralize the expansion of telemedicine programs.
