What is telemedicine?
Telemedicine at Montfort allows you to consult a health specialist without traveling. Montfort uses various innovative technologies to offer care, such as two-way videoconferencing and store forward.
Telemedicine uses video cameras and monitors to connect you to specialists who are not located near you. A telemedicine consultation is similar to a regular appointment, except that the specialist appears on a screen.
The health professional who is accompanying you can help during the examination by using telediagnostic equipment such as a digital stethoscope or an examination camera. The health professional can listen to your heart and breathing or examine your ears, heart and throat, as if he or she were in the examining room with you.
Telemedicine at Hôpital Montfort
Montfort recognises the value of telemedicine to provide care to patients who have to travel great distances to see their health care professional. Telemedicine allows patients and their families to receive care in their own community.
Hôpital Montfort promotes the following three elements related to telemedicine: clinical, educational and administrative. Thanks to this technology, this means that training sessions, among others, are offered. Administrative meetings are also held with participants from different regions, bringing together interdisciplinary teams separated by hundreds of kilometers.
