Abstract:

Telemedicine becoming the future of expanding health care service diversification. The people who were unable to take the proper health care services due to the lack of accessibility for various reasons, are now able to access those through telemedicine. It represents a solution to the medical issues of modern living while taking into account the patient and family pair. Home care is a desirable option because of the transportation issues in large cities and the lack of hospital beds. Telemedicine, though, can change its rhythms. It offers a workable remedy for tele homecare. This study emphasizes a variety of challenges implicated by the usage of mobile patient monitoring devices for healthcare practitioners while also providing a general overview of their technical components. Healthcare professionals can choose the feature sets of potential mobile patient monitoring systems to meet specific healthcare demands by using the framework for comparing mobile patient monitoring systems that has been provided. These systems have proven to be user-friendly, convenient, and successful for both patients and healthcare professionals in several trials. The purpose of this study is to explore and adoption of telemedicine in the Indian healthcare system. It looks to elucidate the relationship between the various variables studied to elucidate adoption strategies and their influence on the strategic implementation of the Health Care Management System (HMS) in the Indian healthcare sector. This paper was created and constructed with the aim of examining the relationship between the dependent variables (Adoption of Tele-Medicine in India's Health Care System) as well as the independent variables (Usage, Utilization, Efficiency, Quality) and then testing the results through Spearman's correlation matrices and multiple regression analysis. The statistical testing of the research variables revealed a statistically significant positive relationship between each independent variable (Ease of Use, Usefulness, Efficiency, and Quality) and the associated dependent variable (adoption of telemedicine in the Indian Health Care System). A research model and its associate hypotheses are proposed and empirically tested using structural equation modelling (SEM) to understand fitting conceptual model.
