Privacy considerations

0

The telemedicine room shall provide speech and visual privacy with adjacent spaces based on the room’s clinical function. Space shall permit the arrangement of monitors, screens, or other projections of images or data so they are not visible to casual observers outside the telemedicine room. It is important to take the issue of privacy into account and to choose a room that ensures patient confidentiality. Only the individuals involved in the consultation should be authorized to see and listen to what takes place in the room.  

The volume should be high enough to facilitate a conversation between patient and clinician, but not so loud that people outside the room can hear what is being said inside the room. Indeed, for certain cases, such as telemental health consultations, a headset may be used to obtain better sound quality and for confidentiality purposes. To prevent unauthorized individuals from intruding on the consultation, a sign should be placed on the door to indicate that the room is occupied. A door hanger may be useful for this purpose.
