A Study on the Activation of Telemedicine in COVID-19 pandemic
With the recent spread of 'social distance keeping' with the Corona 19 pandemic, 'untouch' consumption' has become commonplace, and 'untouch society' has emerged as a new paradigm. According to a consumer perception survey of undactored services, post-corona 19 non-face-to-face consumption is expected to increase 1.6 times more than before Corona 19, and 24.7 percent of telemedicine-related industries need to be intensively fostered. We are currently restricted from general face-to-face care due to the Corona 19 Pandemics situation and need to review the introduction of telemedicine at a comprehensive level. However, legal protection such as the Personal Information Protection Act is needed in promoting telemedicine. Due to the nature of telemedicine, a system with the highest level of information security to prevent loss, theft, leakage, tampering, or damage of personal medical information will need to be introduced and established, and the medical law needs to specify laws related to personal information protection. In addition, unlike face-to-face care, which is the principle of the current medical law, telemedicine does not fully guarantee the stability of the outcome of the treatment, as it excludes methods of treatment such as promotion, diagnosis and other diagnosis. Legal attribution of responsibility for misdiagnosis due to problems with telemedicine devices and communication problems, medical personnel between medical personnel at large local hospitals and small hospitals, quality medical services for patients and privacy laws for patients, and government efforts through appropriate social consultations are needed. Currently, the government is temporarily pushing for telemedicine, but legal issues such as the Personal Information Protection Act and imputation issues, as well as problems between medical personnel and patients, need to be discussed and discussed. After these problems are settled, telemedicine needs to be further activated so that it can play a complementary role in face-to-face care for patients in the current Corona19 paradigm, and the effective system between patients and doctors in telemedicine through phased legislation in line with the development of information and communication and medical technology in the future.
