Revival: Telecommunication for Health Care (1982)

Revival: Telecommunication for Health Care (1982)

Author: J.H.U. Brown Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 28/01/2019

There are relatively few references in this volume. This occurs for two reasons. In the first place, the Federal government has sponsored most of the communication experiments in health care and many of the results are buried in government reports. Some of these have been included. Secondly, although very large projects have been initiated and some may set a pattern for future health care, they have not attracted merited attention.

The Human Challenge of Telemedicine Toward Time-sensitive and Person-centered Ethics in Home Telecare

The Human Challenge of Telemedicine Toward Time-sensitive and Person-centered Ethics in Home Telecare

Telepatients using connected objects to collect time-sensitive data about their health are not neutral carriers of diagnosable symptoms. Patients are persons, or personal beings as well as co-carers, whose personal experience, history and know-how must be acknowledged in time-sensitive telecare practices. Such practices require a relational ethics, inspired by medical ethics and an ethics of virtues, focusing on vulnerability and emotional health, to oversee telecare good practices, define a new therapeutic alliance compliant with patients' values, and reconcile the technical and human sides of telemedicine.
