This week, NJBIZ interviewed our very own Dr. Bezozo for their Triple Play. Dr. Bezozo spoke about the importance of telemedicine programs such as MoleSafe. NJBIZ asked for three reasons why telemedicine will improve patient care. Here’s what he had to say:
1. Preventive Care: There are many preventive measures for people who may be at high risk for certain conditions, such as melanoma and other types of cancers, and telemedicine provides greater access to quality care. Getting screened for various types of cancers and enrolling in early detection and surveillance programs will increase one’s odds of avoiding cancer or detecting it at the earliest, most treatable and curable stages.
2. Education: This is needed for patients and doctors alike, to identify the diseases that individuals may be at high risk for developing and identify early detection programs and preventative care to decrease health care costs and increase the quality of life for all individuals.
3. Standard of care: Effectively utilizing technology offered through telemedicine results in several patient benefits, including improved access, reduced cost of health care, reduced travel times and money spent, fewer hospital stays due to early or preventive care, improved quality of care and high patient satisfaction. The adoption of telemedicine will drastically improve quality of care.
