The Peruvian Government forms a National Telehealth Network to connect medical specialists with users in the most vulnerable areas

Emergency treatment in remote patients is now a reality, and they are even starting a teleconsultation in rural areas of the South American country.

The growing technological influence in the world of current medicine allows access to new tools that can strengthen existing processes. The digitalization of several medical services can contribute in large scales to the well-being of patients and the way they relate to their health and the professionals who treat them.

In that sense, telemedicine is growing, allowing medical specialists to provide consultation to multiple patients from a distance, in order to establish an accurate diagnosis, or prescribe a personalized treatment. The challenge of this modality is to ensure that there is stable internet access, and that there is a robust digital platform that allows access to patient information, in order to know their health status, either through computers, mobile devices or other media.

In Peru, the Emergency Teleconsultations program has been launched under the Integrated Health Networks approach and aims to expand the coverage of specialized health care in the different provinces of the country.

The head of the Minsa (Ministry of Health of Peru), Dr. Silvia essah Eljay, informed at the end of 2018 that there were more than 500 health facilities in which Telemedicine and the complete Electronic Medical History are implemented, which allows having greater connectivity in rural areas of the country.

Even when telemedicine had been previously used, there was no project that was especially dedicated to patients in emergency cases, of which more than 50% were in severe pathological conditions.

It’s the first teleconsultation service, which will meet many expectations and address pathological needs that were previously destined for the 1101 teleconsultations that make up the National Telehealth Network and that are located in the area of external offices for more general conditions.

Undoubtedly, this initiative will change the way in which many people relate to their health and their access to the necessary care at the right time through a personalized diagnosis.
