Post Graduate Diploma/Executive Diploma in Telehealth (PGDTH/EDTH)


Telehealth is the distribution of health-related services and information via electronic information and telecommunication technologies. It allows long-distance patient and clinician contact, care, advice, reminders, education, intervention, monitoring, and remote admissions. Telehealth is allowing patients at smaller, less-resourced hospitals to gain access to specialists based at larger regional facilities. Telehealth is more in demand than ever during the coronavirus crisis, and a new report from Frost & Sullivan suggests its uptake will increase by 64.3% nationwide this year, given the disruptions of COVID-19. But in the years ahead, virtual care and remote monitoring should truly take off. Market penetration for telehealth has risen dramatically in the past few months as customers look for alternatives to in-person doctor's visits. By 2016, more than 60% of healthcare providers offered their patients some form of virtual interaction for services. By 2017, that number had risen to 76% — and it shows no signs of slowing down. 74% patients express comfort with the idea of connecting with their doctor by phone, text, or video conference. Telehealth is projected to be a $13 billion industry by 2023.
