Monitoring, consulting, rehabilitating from home with TeleHealth
Singapore is bringing healthcare into homes via a Smart Nation initiative called TeleHealth. The aim here is to enhance healthcare access for patients and improve productivity of the healthcare system.
An example of the initiative is Smart Health TeleRehab. Implemented since May 2017, the programme helps patients recovering from conditions like stroke and fractures. Using wearable motion sensors attached to patients’ limbs, therapists can conduct rehabilitation sessions for patients in their homes.
Take a look at many other TeleHealth programmes at Smart Nation Singapore.
