It is not only the Corona pandemic that has shown that telemedicine is becoming increasingly important in everyday clinical practice. For example, video consultations are not only accepted by doctors and patients, but explicitly desired. The digital and contactless offers, save time and still provide a professional platform that meet the needs of patients.
We define a video call between a patient and his doctor as a "video consultation". The German health care system has several conditions for these calls which we all fulfill. As a result we can call ourselves "provider of certified video consultations". If the call is between a health care worker and a doctor, we define it as a "tele consultation". Unlike in video consultations, a tele consultation doesn't only involve giving out medical advise but also delegation of medical services and point of care measurements with medical gadgets for diagnostics.
