Skype is known by most as a way to keep in touch with friends, family and co-workers. But health professionals are using Skype a bit differently!

By using Skype to consult with patients and other healthcare professionals, healthcare communication has certainly been enhanced in many ways.

Uses For Skype in Healthcare

Here are a few ways doctors are using Skype to learn, educate and communicate:

  • Consulting with patients who cannot necessarily travel to a practice. Whether it be because they live in a rural area, are immobile or cannot travel due to sever weather conditions.
  • Holding one-on-one or group therapy sessions
  • Providing first aid video instructions
  • Hosting educational seminars for doctors

Check out the infographic below for more Skype uses and statistics.
