What is teleconsultation?


Teleconsultation, sometimes referred to as remote consultation or telehealth, refers to interactions that happen between a clinician and a patient for the purpose of providing diagnostic or therapeutic advice through electronic means.

What do I need to know to host a teleconsultation?

Hosting a teleconsultation requires basic knowledge in the use of technologies, understanding the limitations inherent to teleconsultation, and knowing when a face-to-face consultation is preferable. It is necessary to know how and where (what institutions are offering teleconsultations) to connect, and with which hardware and software, since there are several types. However, the functionalities are the same and are generally very intuitive.



Cloud Based Teleconsultation

Teleconsultation is defined as synchronous or asynchronous consultation using information and communication technology to omit geographical and functional distance. Its goals are for diagnostics or treatment between two or more geographically separated health providers (for example physicians or nurses) or between health providers and patients (1). “Remote consultation” is the superior term of teleconsultation in MeSH (Medical Subject Headings) and is defined as “Consultation by remote telecommunications, generally for the purpose of diagnosis or treatment of a patient at a site remote from the patient or primary physician”(2). A closer look at published articles in this field shows that authors use the “teleconsultation” for 3 reasons: Both sides are health providers [e.g., who may need a second expert opinion] Physician–physician consultation (3-5) Physician–primary care provider (PCP) communication, like nurses (6) One side is health provider and another side is the patients [e.g., for tele-monitoring or tele-visiting] Physician – patient relationship (7) PCP–patient relationship (8, 9) Tripartite communication among physician – PCP – patient (10).
