Importance of telecommunication to health management system

Telecommunication enables people around the world to contact one another to access information instantly and to communicate from remote.

ICT provides economic opportunities to both urban and rural populations. One common contribution is that it increases productivity and makes the market work more efficiently, although the magnitude of the impact on economic mobile customers in the coming years will be in developing countries. And more specifically in rural areas, means that the ICT platform is reaching population with low levels of income and literacy.

As a result, ICT is becoming the largest distribution platform of providing public and private services to millions of people in rural and poor areas. Market information, financial services, education and health services had largely been unavailable in that connectivity of any kind. Now the wireless platform is promoting new economics and social opportunities at all levels for the poor populations.

Obviously, new Information and Communications Technologies (ICT), in particular high-speed internet, are changing the way companies do business, transforming public services delivery and democratizing innovation.

 Telemedicine is the use of telecommunication and information technologies in order to provide clinical health care at a distance. It helps eliminate distance barriers and can improve access to medical services that would often not be consistently available in distant rural communities. It is also used to save lives in critical care and emergency situations.

Although there were distant precursors to telemedicine, it is essentially a product of 20th century telecommunication and information technologies. These technologies permit communications between patient and medical staff with both convenience and fidelity, as well as the transmission of medical, imaging and health informatics data from one site to another.

Early forms of telemedicine achieved with telephone and radio have been supplemented with video telephony, advanced diagnostic methods supported by distributed client/server applications, and additionally with telemedical devices to support in-home care.
