Remote verification is indispensable for healthcare sector

01 april 2020

In our previous blogs, we have described what the coronavirus means for business processes in various sectors. This week we dedicate our blog to the health care sector and the fact that people are required to stay home as much as possible. Organisations have anticipated and a large part of the staff is working from home as due to the virus. This way of working requires online tools for communication between staff, customers and patients, among others.

Telemedicine

Telemedicine is a form of health care in which the doctor gives advice remotely by using telecommunication. A medical consultation via telecommunication is a good solution to deal with the current situation for healthcare. In this way, both practitioner and patient are not at risk, while appropriate advice can be given based on the complaints.

 

Ensuring privacy and security

It’s crucial that the identity of the patient is verified securely before sharing privacy data from the medical file. According to laws and regulations it’s mandatory to guarantee the privacy and security of patient data.
