Having now come of age, telemedicine has the potential of having a greater impact on the future of medicine than any other modality. Telemedicine, in the final analysis, brings reality to the vision of an enhanced accessibility of medical care and a global network of healthcare, which was not even imagined two decades ago. Today, the field of telemedicine has expanded rapidly and is likely to assume greater importance in healthcare delivery in the coming times. To address the developing trend of telemedicine applications in both urban and rural areas throughout the world, this book has been designed to discuss different technologies which are being applied in the field of telemedicine and their applications including advances in wireless technologies, the use of fibre optics in telecommunication, availability of broadband Internet, digital imaging technologies and compressed video techniques that have eliminated the problems of telemedicine and also reduced the cost. Starting with the basic hospital based telemedicine system and leading to mHealth, teleHealth and eHealth, the book covers as to how various physiological signals are acquired from the body, processed and used for monitoring the patients anywhere anytime. The book is primarily intended for undergraduate and postgraduate students of Biomedical Engineering, Biomedical Instrumentation, Computer Science and Information Technology and Hospital Management and Nursing. KEY FEATURES • Covers all aspects of telemedicine technology, including medical devices, telecommunications, networking and interfacing techniques • Provides step-by-step coverage on how to set up a telemedicine centre • Includes broad application areas of telemedicine • Covers essentials of telemedicine including mHealth, eHealth and teleHealth • Provides abbreviations/acronyms and glossary of commonly used terms in telemedicine

As we continue to debate the issues of health care in our nation, I began to explore some of the very funny moments I observed and not-so-funny consequences of the drama that is unfolding and is being played out on our national televisions, our political capital, our streets, our homes, and by our politicians and our citizens. Names and identities are often given for a reason. Without a name or identity, we are all beings roaming this earth. Let's imagine for a moment a world where no names or identities are attached to anything. Imagine waking up and all your family members, friends, pets, things, etc., have no names, no identity. Imagine how chaotic your day would start off. You walk into a hospital full of patients with no identities, no names, a nursery full of newborns with no names, no identities, a home-care setting full of home-care patients with no names, no identities. I am sure that you are getting the drift by now. Yes, chaos would ensue, to say the least. Now you get the gist as to why we are so attached to the idea of names and identities. Yes, we name and identify people and things for a reason. Identities are given to people and things for a very good reason. Depending on your culture, there are also meanings attached to naming and identifying people and things. Some cultures observe a child and choose a name that suits that child's personality. When Kate, the Duchess of England, and Prince William named their newborn child George the III, it was suggested that the name was chosen due to several reasons as reported below.

It will assist all who wish to learn about teledentistry protocols and the e-oral health branch or to implement e-oral health solutions and procedures in clinical practice. The book opens by discussing general aspects of e-oral health, including tools, networks, and the very important ethical considerations. The use and specific benefits of e-oral health technologies in the diagnosis of different conditions, orthodontic assessment, implantology evaluation, and caries prevention are then fully explained. Finally, examples are provided of the ways in which teledentistry functions in different countries on different continents. e-Oral health is a burgeoning field that encompasses teledentistry as well as other uses of information and communication technologies for oral health care purposes.

Telehealth -- the delivery of health services and clinical information from a distance -- has reached new levels with the communication revolution of the last decade: consumer videoconferencing, mobile devices, high bandwidth infrastructure and close range wireless sensor networks have made many advances possible in the field. New specialized clinical applications and markets have also emerged. These include tele-homecare, tele-rehabilitation and tele-emergency, surveillance and disaster response, while ideas which once seemed futuristic, such as tele-procedures and tele-surgery, are now seen as being within the realms of possibility. This book contains selected papers from the 2010 Global Telehealth conference, hosted by the Australasian Telehealth Society. They cover a broad spectrum, from successfully completed projects to work in progress. The papers chosen for publication are all deemed to have lasting value, and to capture the international diversity and scope of contemporary telehealth developments. Two aspects which remain elusive in advancing telehealth deployment, both in developed countries and the developing world, are widely accepted evidence for the clinical and economic benefits of telehealth and the development of policy and business modeling drivers which will speed their adoption. The studies presented here exemplify precisely the type of work required to overcome these obstacles and the book will be of interest to all those involved in advancing the efficiency and effectiveness of healthcare throughout the world.

The use of eHealth and mHealth interventions for health promotion, health professional education, and health professional support is on the rise. They have a significant potential for learning through their wide reach, ability to tailor to specific needs, and facilitation of engagement, interactivity, and collaboration. Although eHealth and mHealth interventions are invested in quality and effectiveness, they vary in their use of theory and instructional design principles based on the perspectives of the disciplines that can influence their work. Instructional Design Exemplars in eHealth and mHealth Education Interventions showcases design exemplars of eHealth and mHealth interventions in health promotion and in education and support of health professionals. These exemplars demonstrate the integration of theory and design principles that benefit health professionals and health education. Covering topics such as healthcare access, instructional technology, and diverse learning experiences, this book is a dynamic resource for health professionals, instructional designers, educators, researchers, hospital administrators, policymakers, researchers, and academicians.

The Routledge Handbook of Health Communication brings together the current body of scholarly work in health communication. With its expansive scope, it offers an introduction for those new to this area, summarizes work for those already learned in the area, and suggests avenues for future research on the relationships between communicative processes and health/health care delivery. This second edition of the Handbook has been organized to reflect the goals of health communication: understanding to make informed decisions and to promote formal and informal systems of care linked to health and well-being. It emphasizes work in such areas as barriers to disclosure in family conversations and medical interactions, access to popular media and advertising, and individual searches online for information and support to guide decisions and behaviors with health consequences. This edition also adds an overview of methods used in health communication and the unique challenges facing health communication researchers applying traditional methods to efforts to gain reliable and valid evidence about the role of communication for health. It introduces the promise of translational research being conducted by health communication researchers from multiple disciplines to form transdisciplinary theories and teams to increase the well-being of not only humans but the systems of care within their nations. Arguably the most comprehensive scholarly resource available for study in this area, the Routledge Handbook of Health Communication serves an invaluable role and reference for students, researchers, and scholars doing work in health communication.
