Abstract

Background : Poornima University, in collaboration with Jodhpur School of Public Health, hosted an
insightful and interactive live global webinar on the topic of “Digitally Transforming the Future of Global
Public Health” on July 20, 2020.
Findings: This report gives a brief awareness on the global public health transformation to digital platforms
and understand the technical uses of artificial intelligence (AI). During COVID-19, use of Telemedicine
has increased, as a tool that reaches patient’s home. In the current situation, where social distancing and
quarantine have been adopted as effective method to reduce the spread of COVID, telemedicine and virtual
software platforms gained more importance to provide health service.
Conclusion: The findings show that telemedicine and virtual software will minimize emergency department
visits, protect healthcare resources and reduce the spread of COVID-19 by remotely treating patients during
and after the COVID-19 pandemic. Telemedicine has continued to increase in uptake and shows tremendous
promise in expanding access to health care, promoting patient disease management, and facilitating inbetween
health care visit monitoring. Although the future is bright, more research is needed to determine
optimal ways to integrate telemedicine, especially remote monitoringinto routine clinical care.
