Telemedicine and HIV health care


Key take-home messages
  • Telemedicine models range from simple telephone consultations to complete “virtual hospitals” offering a full range of home care for people living with HIV.
  • Telemedicine has been well received by patients, and services delivered via telemedicine are often described as more convenient and comfortable while reducing travel times and HIV-related stigma.
  • Clinical outcomes from telemedicine models have been equal to or greater than outcomes using traditional care models.
  • Telemedicine in the form of teleconsultation with HIV specialists allows primary care physicians to build their knowledge base, treat patients more confidently and make fewer referrals.
