Durable Medical Equipment (DME) is a fast growing segment of the telemedicine field. DME consists of things like wheelchairs, hospital beds, traction equipment, canes, crutches, walkers, and ventilators. This is just a partial list, but as you can see, these items are all used in and outside of the home and provide a benefit for a patient dealing with an injury and illness.
As the demand for these products continues to rise, so does the demand for face time with a physician who can prescribe these items. In an effort to alleviate the log jam, many states are moving to a telemedicine approach to serving these clients.
The advantages of the DME telemedicine approach are numerous. A physician can use state of the art, secure video conferencing to diagnose and prescribe DME of a patient. The DME provider can utilize that same system to demonstrate the proper way to fit, adjust, and use the DME.
