Abstract
Concurrent changes in demography, world-health trends, and society and information technology/social networks present a significant challenge in anticipated global health care needs in the immediate future. Hence, a new paradigm needs to be developed. Telemedicine can alleviate many of these needs and shows promising way to deliver clinical care and medical education at a distance, in both the intensive care and pediatric cardiology settings, regionally or even across international borders. In pediatric cardiac critical care in particular, telemedicine models of care need to be tailored in accordance to the different characteristics of remote hospitals, and the best ones incorporate a systematic approach during the implementation of quality improvement initiatives. When used in this way, telemedicine can accelerate the process of collective learning, empowering remote teams and allowing for significant improvement in their patient outcomes. Our intuitional experience with telemedicine in pediatric cardiac critical care is presented here with 3310 teleconsultations provided to 6 international hospitals in Latin America in the last 5 years and more than 2000 quality interventions including ECHO telementoring, ECMO-related adjustments, adverse trend detections and surgery-related recommendations. We postulate that telemedicine is an excellent tool helping to improve performance and accelerate the collective learning curve in medical teams treating pediatric patients with critical congenital heart disease.
