Abstract
We conducted a pilot study to evaluate telemedicine for patients with schizophrenia. The telemedicine system was connected over the ordinary telephone network at 33 kbit/s. A computer-based patient record was used to view patient summaries and to allow nursing notes to be entered at the patient's home. Fifteen patients with schizophrenia were assessed over the telemedicine system and 15 patients were assessed face to face, using the Brief Psychiatric Rating Scale (BPRS). Our low-bandwidth telemedicine system appeared to be as reliable as higher-bandwidth ISDN systems. In addition, the patients' acceptance of the telemedicine interview, in terms of comfort, ease of self-expression, quality of interpersonal relationship and usefulness, was good in most cases. The only factors significantly affecting the patients' level of acceptance of their particular type of interview were the assessment type (i.e. whether the patient had had a telemedicine assessment or not) and their BPRS score. Since the system was of low cost and was easy to interface with a notebook computer, it could be used support other home-health nursing services.
