In the age of digital healthcare systems, user experience (UX) designers are increasingly tasked with making interfaces as straightforward and effective as feasible.

In remote surgical consultations, medical students can be allowed into the operating room to see procedures in real time as they are mentored remotely by experienced surgeons. This contributes to the improvement of surgical education and training.

Education of the patient is an integral component of telehealth. It gives patients education and clinical support to help them comprehend their condition and participate in disease management.

Studies have demonstrated that patient education improves self-efficacy, satisfaction, coping skills, and social support. This is especially true for those with chronic conditions like diabetes, coronary heart disease, and rheumatoid arthritis.

The telehealth patient education approach is rapidly transforming healthcare. This is because telehealth solutions may overcome many constraints to face-to-face patient education, such as time, location, and expense.

In addition, telehealth can provide more efficient and effective care than traditional in-person delivery methods. This can enhance patient outcomes, lower healthcare expenditures, and increase patient engagement throughout the healthcare system.

Although remote consultations have existed for some time (the telemedicine obsession is no laughing matter), the arrival of modern technologies has made the practice more feasible. As described in the last chapter, telemedicine is a game-changer for healthcare professionals and their patients since it enables access to physicians without the need to travel vast distances or endure hospital waiting lists. This is particularly true for underserved and rural communities. A thorough telehealth program, including infrastructure and support personnel, a comprehensive time and coverage system, and billing-savvy reimbursement methods, is the foundation of a successful and sustainable telemedicine initiative. Telesurgical care is not an exception. The most recent advancements in telecommunications technology and mobile application development enable various innovative and intriguing patient interaction and monitoring methods. In addition, it has spawned a new generation of healthcare professionals and tech-savvy consumers. The consequence is a vibrant industry with an expanding need for creative, cost-effective, and high-quality goods and services.

The increasing prevalence of clinical decision support (CDS) tools can enhance patient outcomes and health care systems. CDS systems can perform normal activities, warn of potential issues, and provide clinical teams and patients with ideas to consider.

The purpose of this study was to evaluate the user experience of a remote surgical consultation. Using data from 142 teleguided ERCP procedures performed at five hospitals, surgeons were asked to rate the service's contribution to their performance and results.

During the session, surgeons gave a variety of patient and case-related details. This included gender, age, ERCP history, and whether sedation or general anaesthetic was to be used during the surgery.

Clinicians also employ contextual probing, which entails identifying hints about the patient's life circumstances and behaviour (called contextual red flags), asking about them, and adjusting care to address them. These environmental elements and their influence on diagnosis and therapy influence the clinician-patient relationship.
