Check up of the heart in the pharmacy thanks to telemedicine

Check up of the heart in the pharmacy thanks to telemedicine

To perform a heart health check-up, it is not necessary to go to the hospital: today there are over 4,300 pharmacies in Italy using telemedicine for tests such as electrocardiograms and measuring blood pressure or cardiac activity in the arc of 24 hours . The number of services performed has seen a boom in the last year, with a growth of 46%. This is shown by the data released by HTN Virtual Hospital, a company that carried out the project together with Federfarma .

"The pharmacies that offer the service", specifies the national secretary of Federfarma, Roberto Tobia, to Ansa "have a dedicated space where the examination is carried out through hospital devices; the course of the exam is sent to a certified specialist centerwhich, in turn, after reading the data, sends the report of the exams electronically to the pharmacy in a very short time. If the results are abnormal, the patient is sent to the attending physician or, depending on the severity, to the emergency room. This has allowed many people to be saved with ongoing myocardial infarctions ».

Starting as a pilot project, the service is now spreading. In the second quarter of 2019 , almost 29,000 diagnostic services were provided, with an increase, compared to the same period of 2018, of approximately 10,000 (+ 46%). Considering the entire first half of 2019, the exams were over 62,600, + 44% compared to the same period of 2018 (43.400). The number of pharmacies that make use of these services also grew by 5% compared to the second quarter of 2018, today 4,382 out of approximately 19,000.
