(2020). Use of Telehealth During the COVID-19Pandemic: Scoping Review. Journal of Medical Internet Research, 22(12), e24087.The purpose of this article is to examine the recent uptick in the use of telehealth, with a focuson the COVID-19 Pandemic. Doraiswamy et al. recognized the detrimental results of the pandemic,investigated the existing telehealth framework and assessed the ongoing efforts. Despite the availabilityof telehealth options, novel strategies beyond regular doctor visits were still needed to combat thepandemic. This piece makes use of various forms of information and communication technology (ICT),such as personal computers, mobile phones, the Internet, and various forms of broadcast media (such astelevision and radio). Doraiswamy et al. further delineates between telehealth (applying to all medicalstaff), telemedicine (restricted to doctors), and mobile health (mHealth) (which refers to mobile healthapplications).Despite its widespread use in high-income countries, access to telehealth is restricted in low-income countries. Before the epidemic, telehealth systems already had safeguards in place to protectthe confidentiality of patients' medical records. Another issue was that many people did not have accessto telehealth services because they did not have the necessary health insurance. However, many nationsrelaxed their policies, expanding health care access to all citizens during the pandemic. The increaseddemands on health care and the adverse effects of the pandemic are to blame.Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, medical experts were open with their assessments of
telehealth services, and they continue to provide insightful feedback on the state of telehealth today.
