Tele-medicine on Earth and… beyond!
Remote patient monitoring is another growing avenue for tele-medicine, and the TeamViewer solutions are already benefiting patients that are suffering from long-term illnesses or disabilities by giving them access to the care they need. Further, beyond current uses, there is a great opportunity to extend care to people living in hard to reach areas, (for the first time giving these patients access to specialists and experts based in different cities, countries, or even continents.
Truly, when it comes to accessibility of health data, the sky is no longer the limit. The TeamViewer remote connectivity solution has been customised to provide remote imaging capabilities to astronauts on the International Space Station. On Earth, the echo-cardiogram technician guides the astronaut to physically complete the imaging procedure; concurrently, the resulting images, videos, and files from the remote session are beamed back to Earth. The goal is to understand how the heart functions and adapts in the stressful environment of space – which can surely help us here on Earth as well.
TeamViewer is proud to offer remote access solutions that help expand health care access to all, and that is something to celebrate on World Health Day and any day!
