Tele-diagnosis is a form of telemedicine concerned with the collection of raw patient data (samples, vital signs, etc.) for diagnosis by central automated systems or for distant manual processing. Tele-diagnosis has only been made possible through innovative utilization of 21st century technologies in handheld medical equipment.

The benefits of tele-diagnosis are diverse and include:

  • Risk of Infection: the ability to diagnose and treat patients at their place of residence reduces the risk of hospital-acquired infections. 

  • Cost Savings: proven to reduce costs for patients (in terms of hospital fees, transportation, dependency on carers, etc.) and for providers (in terms of administrative duties, geographical reach, etc.). 

  • Chronic Patients: improve the livelihood of chronic patients by delivering timely healthcare interventions, reducing appointment wait times, reducing dependency on carers, and vulnerability to infections.

  • Convenienceincrease access to healthcare services for: daytime employees, regional and remote patients, as well as persons with limited mobility.

  • Workplace Productivity: limit employees need to leave the workplace to seek healthcare services, therefore reducing lost time in transportation, appointment wait times, etc. 


Wearable technology in healthcare includes electronic devices designed to collect data about the personal health of patients. Recent advancements in the wearables domain have produced devices with both analytical and reporting capabilities. A device can, for instance, collect vital signs of patient, analyze the data, prepare a medical report, and automatically transmit the report to the patient's physician. Nowadays, wearable medical devices play a crucial role in the management of chronic and elderly patients.    

Wearable technology is beneficial in many aspects; including:

  • Case Management: wearable technology can provide physicians with constant streamlined information about the health of their patients (e.g. vital signs) enabling better case management and timely medical interventions.

  • Emergency Response: specialized wearables are generally equiped with fall and/or heart failure detection features that initiate automated responses (e.g. alerts to relatives/carers or request an ambulance). This leads to a timely and effective emergency response; saving the lives of chronic and elderly patients.

  • Stress Management: specialized wearable technology uses Autonomic Nervous System (ANS) transmissions to measure stress levels and provide feedback to the user. Since the ANS helps the body adapt to both internal body demands and external environmental factors by maintaining a physiologic balance, it’s the “first to know” of any unforeseen stress issues that could affect your overall health.
