Health Care management
Telemedicine refers to the provision of remote clinical services, via real-time multiple-way communication between the patient, healthcare provider, and administrators using electronic audio and visual means.
The role of telemedicine lies in the convenience it offers to patients and practitioners by eliminating the necessity for a physical visit to get medical advice or treatment. It is cost-effective in comparison to the process of the appointment to see a doctor or other practitioner.
It is of immense value in the follow-up of patients with chronic diseases such as diabetes, high cholesterol, or high blood pressure. Some of the advantages brought by telemedicine include the convenience, the shorter waiting time for a consultation, the access it provides to high-quality medical diagnosis and treatment, and the lesser cost of most consultations. In addition, the ready availability of patient records online has the potential to make patient prescriptions more reliable and accurate.
Telemedicine can also improve the patient-physician relationship by easily providing second opinions. Finally, it produces improved health outcomes, which should be the primary goal of all health services.
By partnering with worldwide telemedicine providers and clinicians in the US and China, we are striving to provide services that eliminate time and distance between those who need healthcare and those who provide it. We are connecting people with top healthcare services by offering quality products and cutting edge technologies.
The equipment used in this technology allows the doctor and patient to communicate in real time as the patient is being assessed. The programs used create web based patient record systems that are specifically designed for the needs of both live and deferred telemedicine consultations. In addition, the programs enable remote clinical healthcare providers to: capture and share medical device data, exchange documents and medical images in real time, and participate in a live video conference.

Traditional Chinese Medicine
Traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) originated in ancient China and has evolved over thousands of years. TCM practitioners use herbal medicines and various mind and body practices, such as acupuncture and tai chi, to treat or prevent health problems. In the United States, people use TCM primarily as a complementary health approach.
TCM encompasses many different practices including acupuncture, moxibustion (burning an herb above the skin to apply heat to acupuncture points), Chinese herbal medicine, tui na (Chinese therapeutic massage), dietary therapy, and tai chi and qi gong (practices that combine specific movements or postures, coordinated breathing, and mental focus). TCM is rooted in the ancient philosophy of Taoism and dates back more than 2,500 years. Traditional systems of medicine also exist in other East and South Asian countries, including Japan (where the traditional herbal medicine is called Kampo) and Korea. Some of these systems have been influenced by TCM and are similar to it in some ways, but each has developed distinctive features of its own.
Although the exact number of people who use TCM in the United States is unknown, it was estimated in 1997 that some 10,000 practitioners served more than 1 million patients each year. According to the 2007 National Health Interview Survey (NHIS), which included a comprehensive survey on the use of complementary health approaches by Americans, an estimated 3.1 million U.S. adults had used acupuncture in the previous year. The number of visits to acupuncturists tripled between 1997 and 2007. According to the 2007 NHIS, about 2.3 million Americans practiced tai chi and 600,000 practiced qi gong in the previous year.
Chronic Disease Management

It can improve your quality of life while reducing your health care costs if you have a chronic disease by preventing or minimizing the effects of a disease.
Some chronic illnesses that need close monitoring include: diabetes, arthritis, asthma, cancer, cardiovascular diseases, and viral diseases such as hepatitis C and HIV/AIDS among others.
