Viewpoint: Telemedicine needs remote visualization to provide better patient care

To optimize treatment, physicians should integrate remote visualization solutions into their telemedicine practices, writes Stephen Wheat, director of HPC Pursuits at Hewlett Packard Enterprise, in an op-ed for HPC Wire.

To evaluate patients via telemedicine, physicians must be able to conveniently access critical patient data, test results and high-definition medical images. A data storage solution like remote visualization allows multiple physicians to retrieve files and images stored on a central server. These clinicians can access files quickly, instead of losing "precious time" waiting for downloads, he writes.

These solutions are already in use for teleradiology, hospice care and for connecting rural patients to specialists at urban hospitals, Mr. Wheat writes.
