Cardiovascular diseases play a major role in general morbidity and disability, representing one of the major burdens to our healthcare system. Telemedicine can reduce the pressure on medical experts, who are limited in number, and extend their expertise to patients in isolated or remote locations.
Telemedicine is particularly useful in dealing with cardiovascular disease, because early, tailored interventions are extremely cost-effective in terms of life-saving and functional recovery. Telecardiology has advantages for the individual patient in the interaction between primary and secondary care.
Telecardiology has been widely used in the diagnosis of arrhythmias and for the management of patients with chronic cardiovascular conditions. It is important to note that in many cardiovascular conditions, such as acute coronary syndromes, the opportunity to offer prompt diagnosis and treatment will improve outcomes in terms of mortality and functional recovery.
