Concrete diagnoses are the be-all and end-all in medicine. However, the Corona pandemic made the conditions for good diagnostics more difficult. Telemedicine offers an alternative - not only in times of pandemic. For this, however, it is necessary to exploit the full potential of technical possibilities.

In order to offer an experience equivalent to a physical visit to the doctor, the applications must go beyond mere consultations. In addition to robotic examination systems, artificial intelligence can also make an important contribution to symptom recognition.

Telemedicine: Safe diagnostics in the pandemic - and beyond

Who could have foreseen how the Corona pandemic would transform our lives? The work world has been transformed by mobile working and digital tools. Face-to-face meetings still matter, but they are not quite as important as they used to be. And telemedicine is changing how physicians interact with patients.

Telediagnostic solutions: expert exams with no physical contact

Applications of telemedicine surged in popularity in efforts to reduce the COVID-19 infection risk for both medical professionals and patients. Unfortunately, the services typically lack a proper diagnostic option.

Respiratory diseases: "AI helps patients track symptom severity"

When they are presented with respiratory disease, physicians listen to the lungs and airways to assess the sound of the patient’s breath and cough. Artificial intelligence now helps patients with respiratory diseases even outside of the doctor’s office: "ResGuard Med" monitors coughing during the night, detects the worsening of symptoms and issues an alert.

Topic of the Month April 2022 : Telemedicine as an alternative: contactless and secure diagnoses
 

Telemedicine has proven its worth during the Corona pandemic as it helped to reduce contacts during medical treatment. And it will still protect both medical staff and patients from infectious diseases in future.

 

In addition to the basic diagnosis of vital signs, the system can also be used to perform a pharyngeal examination, as is necessary when testing for COVID-19.

 

"ResGuard Med" is able to complement existing medical apps to monitor the night-time cough of patients with chronic respiratory diseases. This can close an important gap in the monitoring of these diseases.
