Les facteurs influençant le développement de la télémédecine dans les EHPAD de la région urbaine de Caen face au contexte démographique actuel

Abstract : Introduction: we have a positive population flow, which can not always be supported by General Practioners in the Caen area who end up in nursing homes. Telemedicine offers access to care in a deficit area, without moving for an vulnerable population such as those living in nursing homes. However, despite a certain "fashion phenomenon", telemedicine is not so much popularized as that. Methods: the qualitative method was selected for this study on a selection of 15 nursing homes located in Caen and its urban community. Results: we finally met either the coordinating physician, the coordinating nurse or the two in 14 nursing homes (the 15th refused to receive us for lack of time). 4 of them refused registration. Discussion: The originality of the subject lies in the fact that there have been several theses on telemedicine, some studies on telemedicine in nursing homes, but we have not found any other work on the development of telemedicine related to medical demography. Telemedicine saves time, money and offers access to care. Its limits are poor communication, a system of fears around the tool and problems of funding nursing homes. Conclusion: medical demography in the Caen area is worrisome. This work indicates that telemedicine appears to be an effective tool in the face of the problems of medical demography, but a tool used in a non-optimized way for various reasons.
