Abstract:
Background
It is necessary to deploy mobile and wireless systems in healthcare، because they have many benefits for healthcare systems. The objectives of this article were introducing various systems، applications، and standards of the wireless and mobile telemedicine.
Material And Methods
This review study was conducted in 2010. To conduct the study، published articles in the years 2005 to 2012، in English with an emphasis on wireless and mobile technologies in health were studied. Search was done with key words include telemedicine، wireless health systems، health and telecommunications technology in databases including Pubmed، Science Direct، Google Scholar، Web of Sciences، Proquest. The collected data were analyzed.
Results
Telemedicine system in the ambulance، telemedicine systems in space، telecardiology systems، EEG system، ultrasound system are some types of wireless and mobile systems in telemedicine. PDA-based mobile and wireless telemedicine application، based PDA drug application، and patient tracking application are some of wireless and mobile applications of telemedicine. The most important standards of wireless and mobile telemedicine are HL7، DICOM، SNOMed، and ICD-9-CM.
Conclusion
There are many challenges in the wireless and mobile systems in telemedicine، despite the many benefits. Slow speed in sending pictures and video، lack of attention to the privacy in the design of these systems، environmental variables and the number of users during the day are some of these challenges. It is recommended to consider these challenges during the planning and designing of wireless and mobile systems in telemedicine.
