Telemedicine Services

Telemedicine Services by [Hugues Batsielilit, Dedrick Moone]

Telehealth usage or Telemedicine services have had a significant rise due to the surge in COVID-19 cases. However, is the rise in Telehealth usage just a matter of time, for only those in developed countries, or does remote healthcare delivery via developed modalities hold the promise of bringing reliable, pocket-friendly medical care to a large number of neglected people in the emerging countries? In Telemedicine Services, the author comes up with an explanation for this question, examining the inefficiencies of the healthcare system, with a focus on Africa, Haiti, and the US Virgin Islands, the three worst-affected regions. To make the authorities and the general public aware of the potential benefits of telemedicine technology as the future of health care, the author has presented a comprehensive and well-researched argument.

Presented in seven chapters, the first chapter of the book discusses the deplorable state of healthcare services across Africa, Haiti, and the U.S Virgin Islands, pointing out the numerous internal loopholes within the healthcare system, as well as how reliable telepath technology can streamline health care in these regions. The second chapter examines the title of the book, Telemedicine, which encompasses several aspects of the term. Throughout the rest of the book, the author addresses telemedicine technology adoption, the all-important preparation, ensuing challenges and risks, and the future of telemedicine. As an expert international consultant in public health surveillance and a communicable disease specialist, a healthcare administrator, and a community health coordinator for more than ten years, author Hugues Fidele Batsielilit’s vast experience in the healthcare field strengthens his arguments for the efficiency and potential of Telemedicine Services. Telemedicine Services being the first book authored by him, A COVID-19 Africa, Haiti, And The U.S Virgin Islands: The Response, the Aftermath, & Future Projections, his second book, is his other endeavor for the uplift and welfare of people in these regions. With factual data and well-supported opinions and recommendations, the book seems promising. It is balanced and unbiased. I find the description of Telemedicine and its module explicitly informative, and the description of its sub-specialties was something novel to me.

While the book was well researched and provides readers with enlightening content, I felt that the arrangement of the chapters could have been organized in a way to slowly provide information in bits rather than in large chunks.

Telemedicine Services attributes the current inaccessibility of Telehealth technology to the government, the administration of emerging countries, corruption, the lack of adequate legislation, and the lack of efforts on the part of many departments with the onus of uplifting viable access to Telehealthcare facilities. It promotes the idea of coming out as a conscious and alert individual, observing and advancing Telemedicine services as the future of health. I recommend it to those who wish to gain a broad perspective on the different aspects of telemedicine, and the prospective future of the healthcare system.
