This year again, due to staffing issues, hospital emergency services risk spending a summer under high tension. To cope and find lasting solutions, the government has issued nearly 41 proposals as part of its “flash mission“. In particular the generalization of teleconsultation in all the departments of France, to make it easier for patients to access urgent care and not to overload hospitals for pathologies that can be treated remotely.
Teleconsultation booths prove their worth
They represent a real time saver, especially during the holidays. Because a health problem can happen at any time. It is sometimes essential to obtain the diagnosis by a healthcare professional a.s.a.p. This is what the Tessan cabins (French MedTech specialist in augmented teleconsultation) allow. They are 450 in number, available throughout France.
Installed in various public places (pharmacies, town halls, health centers, etc.). Thanks to them, throughout the summer, the French will be able to call at any timedirectly at their vacation spot, a general practitioner and/or specialist. This pilots the teleconsultation remotely. He can thus diagnose most pathologies.
Through the use of 7 connected medical objects, 80% of the examinations are feasible, in the same way as during a classic consultation in the office. If necessary, a prescription is printed directly in the cabin or on the terminal. A secure QR code allows the pharmacist to deliver the prescribed drugs
Last summer, Tessan recorded 9,328 teleconsultationsmainly for reasons such as: insect bites, allergic reactions on the skin, urinary tract infection, sensitive eyes (conjunctivitis, stye), fever, prescription renewal (forgotten medicines at home), injuries (sprains, sores, …). It was in the Gard department that there were the most 1,088 teleconsultations.
