Telemedicine: Complement To Health Care

Today, we have one physician per 325 patients in the US, medical schools provide about 18,938 new graduates who enter the workforce every year, according to the latest AMA statistics.

The US grows at a rate of 3.0 per 1,000 people per year (975k new patients every year).

As you can see, it will be impossible to keep up the pace of our growth as a country and still deliver good quality care that can reach everyone.


What is Telemedicine?

Telemedicine is the use of telecommunication and information technology to provide clinical healthcare remotely.



  • Monitor patients remotely and receive alerts when something is wrong, decreasing the possibility of a patient to go to the ER or being hospitalized.
  • Doctors can examine patients while away, giving doctors more control of their time and quality of life while still delivering non-emergent care to their patients.telemedicine device
  • A patient can connect with a physician from home via a HIPAA-compliant video conference for non-urgent medical matters.
  • Patients are able to go anywhere in the world and be examined, advised and eventually treated by her/his own primary care.
  • Patients can overcome distance bars and increase access to medical care services that would often not be consistently available in distant rural communities areas.
  • To save lives in critical care and emergency situations.
  • You are able to save time and money and travel expenses. Doctors are happier because they can work from their offices, home or any part of the world.

Telemedicine Applies To All Sectors:

Treating direct to consumer, helping practices increase their reach to patients, monitoring chronic disease thereby preventing future hospitalizations and even treating patients in the hospital in an acute care setting.


It could be as simple as a phone call or HIPAA-compliant video communication to your doctor to as sophisticated as being able to examine and listen to heart, abdominal and lung sounds remote, allowing to start lifesaving treatment right away.

You are able to save time and money, and travel expenses. Doctors are happier because they can work from their offices, home or any part of the world.

Telemedicine treatment


Definitely not, telemedicine is a very powerful tool to empower patients and increase the doctor’s reach. More than a replacement, I see it as a complement to medicine. We probably will be able to do more each year as technology advances. For example, the use of augmented and virtual reality might allow doctors to palpate patients remotely in the decades to come.

Laboratory Testing

1. Micronutrient Lab Testing
Overwhelming scientific evidence confirms that vitamin deficiencies are associated with disease processes and the overall condition of one’s health. Vitamin, mineral and antioxidant deficiencies have been shown to suppress immune function and contribute to chronic degenerative processes such as arthritis, cancer, Alzheimer’s, cardiovascular disease and diabetes. Using advance genetic testing this test will tailor any of your vitamin, minerals and or antioxidants needs. Based on a revolutionary method that measures the biochemical function of vitamins, minerals, amino acids and antioxidants, the micronutrient Lab Testing from Spectra Cell’s Laboratories provides a powerful portrait of each patient’s long-term nutrient status.
2. Cardiometabolic Risk Assessment/Lipoprotein Particle Profile Test
Approximately 50 percent of people suffering from heart attacks have shown “normal” cholesterol numbers. Cholesterol testing has historically been used as the standard indicator for cardiovascular disease classified as HDL (good) or LDL (bad). However, it is actually the lipoprotein particles that carry the cholesterol throughout our body, not necessarily the cholesterol within them, that are responsible for key steps in plaque production and the resulting development of cardiovascular disease. Now there is an advanced cholesterol testing technology, which accurately measures both the density and number of lipoprotein particles. This test allows us, with much better accuracy to determine the Risk of Coronary Artery Disease in our patients.
