Telerounding & telementoring for urological procedures
AbstractTelemedicine is the use of medical information exchanged from one site to another via electronic communications to improve a patient’s clinical health status. Telemedicine includes a growing variety of applications and services using two-way video, email, smart phones, wireless tools and other forms of telecommunications technology. Starting out over forty years ago with demonstrations of hospitals extending care to patients in remote areas, the use of telemedicine has spread rapidly and is now becoming integrated into the ongoing operations of hospitals, specialty departments, home health agencies, private physician offices as well as consumer’s homes and workplaces. There’s also a current trend in the use of telemedicine in urology. In the present paper we aimed to review the recent literature about telemedicine and the use of telerounding and telementoring in urological procedures.
