Telemedicine is the solution for problems facing by the health care system in Hong Kong

The health care system in Hong Kong is facing formidable challenges, especially the public system which provides more than 90% of services to the society. The population is rapidly aging. One in four of the citizen will be older than 65 by year 2030. This implies a greater burden on the health care system in terms of human resources and financial expenses.

Innovation in technology is an area proliferates in recent few decades. Evidence demonstrates telemedicine can significantly reduce medical expenses, enhance medical education as well as improve the quality of care. Teleconsultation, for instance, has been proven can reduce the resources for patients’ transportation and reduce the time for health care provide to manage the disease. There are many other areas developed in the telemedicine in individual specialty of medicine. We aim to provide an overview of how telemedicine can resolve the challenges facing by the current health care system.

香港的醫療制度正面臨嚴峻的挑戰,尤其是為社會提供九成以上服務的公共制度。人口迅速老齡化。到2030年,四分之一的公民將超過65歲。這意味著在人力資源和財務支出方面,醫療系統的負擔更大。

技術創新是近幾十年來的一個熱點領域。有證據表明,遠程醫療可以顯著降低醫療費用,加強醫學教育,提高醫療質量。例如,遠程會診已經被證明可以減少病人的交通資源,減少醫療機構管理疾病的時間。遠程醫療在個體醫學方面還有許多其他領域的發展。我們的目標是提供遠程醫療如何解決當前醫療體系面臨的挑戰的概述。
