An international telemedicine model design
using e-health to improve chronic disease early detection and initial management in rural areas.

Published 2005 .
Written in English.

About the Book

Chronic degenerative diseases represent a major healthcare challenge for Mexico. Mexico is having a double burden to fight both transmissible and noncommunicable disease. Can an electronic tool be designed to control this type of disease? This research answers the proposed question by designing an e-health model to facilitate early detection and proper initial treatment of chronic disease patients living in Mexican rural areas. The proposed model is website-based interface that provides: patient registration, screening for diabetes mellitus, hypertension and obesity, initial disease management and monitoring. These features are intended to create an electronic file and provide accurate chronic disease records for the selected rural clinics. A simulation showed that the system was working properly. A group of Mexican physicians that used the system for several days provided positive feedback regarding the design and functionality. Nevertheless, a clinical trial must be performed to measure the real impact of the system.
