Why is the application of telemedicine to nursing care neccessary?

The need for remote nursing home care and community nursing homes (institutional care) are accelerating in Jamaica and the Caribbean because of the impact of the non-communicable disease pandemic, both locally, regionally and globally. The demographic trends of the aging of our societies also play a very important role in the need for a case by case approach to controlling the pandemic of non-communicable diseases. Application of telemedicine by the nursing profession in these circumstances is critical, necessary for the management of the NCDs and remote home care is the most affordable and accessible healthcare delivery technology and process.
