Implementing Telehealth in Correctional Facilities
Telehealth provides many benefits, such as improves patient outcomes, access to services, provider and patient satisfaction, and decreases costs. All could be replicated in the correctional facility population. VidyoHealth provides three main telehealth solutions for correctional facilities.
Telehealth Video Conferencing Solutions
With VidyoHealth’s secure and robust conferencing solution, inmates can be connected to a doctor right away with superior audio and video quality.
The positive impact of telehealth can change correctional facility health care and should be expanded to additional correctional facilities. Telehealth has been the topic for systematic reviews on diabetes, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and heart failure, but a systematic review on telehealth in correctional facilities health care is needed to understand the effect on this unique population. Telehealth in correctional facilities include:
- Accessibility of healthcare services
- Diagnostic accuracy and reliability
- Remote psychiatric consultations
- Acceptability to patients and clinicians
- Considerations of finance and efficiency
