Developments in computing, information technology, and telecommunications infrastructure are stimulating an interactive information system based on a three-dimensional (3D) model of a real hospital. Falling equipment costs, increased power on the desktop, and ease-of-use are the other important factors building the concept of a virtual hospital (VH).

New analysis from Frost & Sullivan (ti.frost.com), The Virtual Hospital of the Future, finds that the idea edging forward a VH is a virtual combination of applications such as telemedicine, telecare, telehealth, online health, and e-health, to enable and accelerate the interoperability and interconnection of services developed by different organizations at different locations, through real integration.

If you are interested in a virtual brochure, which provides manufacturers, end users, and other industry participants an overview of the latest analysis of the The Virtual Hospital of the Future, then send an email to Melina Trevino - Corporate Communications at melina.trevino[.]frost.com with the following information: your full name, company name, title, telephone number, email address, city, state, and country. We will send you the information via email upon receipt of the above information.

"VH refers to an integrated concept of services and platforms for telemedicine, and constitutes an original partnership between healthcare professionals and industries for the delivery of telemedical services for global healthcare," explains Frost & Sullivan Research Analyst Sandhya Kamath. "The primary focus of a VH is to home these dispersed efforts onto a single platform with the implementation of grid-enabled technologies and services."

To set up a VH, a telecommunication link between a patient and caregiver is essential. This link is usually a physical connection, though increasingly it is a wireless circuit.

However, the capacity to carry data is proving to be a potential barrier. The analog bandwidth tends to be lower than digital transmission. On the other hand, if it is digital, it is shared with many other users as on the Internet. These circumstances limit the type of information transmitted.

Overall, advances in information and communications technology increase the effectiveness and applications of telehealth systems. Using telehealth systems incorporated with high media quality and reliability trials in critical care and intensive care are in phase. For instance, Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organization (CSIRO), Australia has implemented a virtual critical care unit and is progressing to establish a virtual intensive care unit.

However, one of the main barriers has been the lack of credible scientific evidence, as people are cautious about investing while demanding data that would substantiate the use of this technology.

"Ironically, the lack of credible evidence to support the use of technology is deterring funding for research to build the evidence base," cites Sandhya. "Apart from the inadequate supportive data, the cost-effectiveness of such a setup is a great debate within the medical community."

The uncertainty is likely to remain a major restraint, until studies carry out demonstrations of the cost-effectiveness of such a setup.

Future trends include the virtual doctor, which is more commonly understood as decision support. This serves as special smart software, capable of providing an accurate medical advice by conversing with the patient by incorporating a type of artificial intelligence.
