Telehealth application in Sudan: requirements and potential benefits

Rabab Elahssan, Farhana Shariff, Michael OGrady, Taha Ibrahim Yousif.

Abstract
Telehealth (TH) is defined as the entire spectrum of activities used to deliver care remotely; without direct physical contact with the patient (1). It could be either provider-to patient or provider-to-provider communications. TH can take place synchronously (telephone and video), asynchronously (patient portal messages, e-consults), and through virtual agents (chat) and wearable devices (1). It has been used to support access to specialized medical advice in remote areas in many countries all over the world. We discuss the potentials uses of TH Clinics in Sudan and propose a guidance of establishing such services. The current pandemic of Sars-Covid-19 Has increased the pressure on most health systems. This has challenged and urged for significant changes in the way we provide health care for both Covid and non-Covid cases. There is great potential for improvement in services in many countries including Sudan with the use of TH.

Key words: Telehealth, virtual clinics, phone clinics, Videoclinics, telemedicine
