Healthcare facilities offering Telehealth/Telemedicine in Nigeria

Telehealth also called Telemedicine is a method of obtaining health care remotely utilizing technology. The format of a Telehealth visit can be via telephone or via video from a smartphone, tablet, or computer.

So instead of a physical visit to a health facility for a non-emergency health concern, a person can reach out to the telehealth platform for a consultation.

A video visit allows the use of a mobile or desktop device to speak with a doctor through a video connection for various non-emergencies.

Another role of Telehealth is in eConsults, where a doctor can consult with another doctor or specialist by utilizing technology to share medical records.

In 2020, the global pandemic created a demand for Telehealth consults, which resulted in an overnight boost in this field.

Many Hospitals in Nigeria offer Telehealth services as a convenience to people who cannot easily access care due to transportation or other logistics challenges.
