Telehealth uses digital and telecommunications technologies to access or provide healthcare services remotely. Telehealth solutions comprise technologies (hardware & software) that enable providers to deliver medical services and patients to access them without either of them meeting physically. Telemedicine solutions have shown great promise in increasing access to care for distant, underserved rural communities. Since patients need not go to see their physicians in person, people who face difficulty with mobility or transportation can receive care from the comfort and privacy of their own homes.
OSP designs and develops its custom telehealth solutions after thorough deliberation with clients. Having more than a decade of experience in healthcare technology, we have built numerous telehealth solutions for clients ranging from single-physician practices to therapists, home care providers, and even testing centers specializing in maternal-fetal scans. Our solutions aim to address the challenges that our clients face and empower them to bolster productivity and better serve their patients.
We have built several cloud-based and on-premises solutions for a vast clientele. OSP can develop advanced telehealth solutions hosted from the cloud to eliminate the need for clients to invest in hardware or a dedicated IT infrastructure. This ensures that clients can use the solutions through existing devices and an internet connection, even while moving. We take time to understand client requirements and deliver the best solutions for streamlining operations.
At OSP, we prioritize the satisfaction of all the stakeholders, including our clients' patients. Our HIPAA-compliant telemedicine software solutions will ensure complete security and integrity of the client's operational data and patients' Protected Health Information (PHI). OSP does this by comprehensively testing its solutions against established criteria and following global best practices to ensure that data is not leaked through any functions.

Telehealth uses digital and telecommunication technologies to deliver and facilitate healthcare services. This can include virtual consultations, prescriptions, patient education, medical information services, etc. Telehealth eliminates the need for doctors and patients to see each other in person. It can extend access to care for people living in remote locations.
1. Problems with physician reimbursement
Many payers don’t consider virtual consultations and remote care the same as conventional in-person care. As a result, physicians have to face reduced or limited reimbursements.
If a telehealth platform is not compatible with existing EHR software or hospital systems, it will complicate telemedicine workflows.
3. Lack of technical know-how for patients and providers
Navigating a telehealth platform might prove difficult for doctors and patients with limited technical aptitude.
4. Errors in diagnosis
Since doctors and patients won’t be seeing each other in person, doctors are more likely to misdiagnose patients due to a lack of physical examinations.
5. Data security
Telemedicine software will increase the likelihood of data leaks or unauthorized data sharing by physicians.
6. Limited connectivity in some locations
People living in specific locations might face limitations with internet speeds, restricting their access to remote care
7. Hardware requirement
People living in poverty might have difficulty purchasing the required hardware to support telehealth software.
Some of the best examples of telehealth include –
Telehealth is the use of technology to avail and provides healthcare services. It mainly relies on telecommunication services for internet connectivity and digital platforms like mobile applications or custom software. Telehealth technologies enable people to access medical care without being physically present at clinics or hospitals. The Covid-19 pandemic accelerated the adoption of telehealth systems since travel restrictions made it difficult and risky to travel to a healthcare facility.
Telemedicine software delivers healthcare services and information remotely outside clinical settings. It uses video, audio, text, or all of them to disseminate medical services. It eliminates the need for doctors and patients to see each other in person. Telemedicine has shown great promise in delivering specialist care to remote, underserved locations.
Telehealth services are medical services provided by doctors and other healthcare professionals to patients without them seeing each other in person. Telehealth services are provided using software applications over the internet, enabling patients to access care without seeing doctors physically.
Some examples of telehealth services include video consultations, remote patient monitoring, secure messaging, and chatbots to reach doctors.
Telehealth is a general term that encompasses all the methods where doctors can provide medical services to patients without them having to see each other physically. Telehealth platforms will facilitate doctor-patient communication without being in the same city. The idea behind telemedicine is not new, but the Covid-19 pandemic accelerated its adoption in the healthcare industry.
Telemedicine works through phone calls, video calls, conference calls, chats, emails, texts, or all. Patients can use a dedicated software application for telemedicine to avail of specific health services from doctors, who would also use that software. This software platform allows patients to book appointments and have a video consultation, receive e-prescriptions, share their test results or scans, and receive advice from their doctor.
In this type of telehealth, doctors and patients have a virtual consultation through a software application instead of an in-person one.
Patients record what they want to communicate and send it to their doctors, who view it and send appropriate replies. Doctors and patients don’t communicate in real time.
This involves collecting a patient’s health data and electronic transmission to a doctor at a remote location.
These are mobile applications and other portable smart devices used for healthcare services.
Patients need to use software applications on smart devices and connect with doctors over the internet through the software. The dedicated software can be used to schedule appointments and even re-schedule them as a necessity.
After confirming appointments, patients can communicate via video calls and virtual consultations with their doctors. Following the consultation, the patients would receive electronic prescriptions. They can also message their doctors securely to resolve any queries.
