Abstract [en]

Telemedicine is the combination of information technology (IT) and health care and is an area that has seen increase during the last few decades due to breakthroughs in IT. Today there are still parts of the health care system that can be counterproductive with regards to the time and commitment necessary. One such part is medical consultations for private individuals where many of the simpler ones are still carried out in-person.

Presented in this thesis is the implementation of a prototype telemedicine system that could be used as a substitute for in-person doctor-patient consultation. Necessary 3rd party components and their implementations into one system are described on a general use level. The result is a web application that supports login and payment via trusted sources, booking of meetings and carrying them out with video and audio.

The prototype is a continuation of a telemedicine web application idea that was put on ice by a company that already provides solutions for health controls and blood analysis.

Abstract [sv]

Telemedicin är kombinationen av informationsteknik (IT) och hälsovård och är ett område som har sett en ökning de senaste årtiondena på grund av genombrott inom IT. Idag finns det fortfarande delar av hälsovården som kan vara kontraproduktiva med avseende på den tid och det åtagandet som krävs. En sådan del är medicinska konsultationer för privatpersoner där många av de simplare mötena fortfarande sker i person.

Presenterat i denna avhandling är implementationen av ett distribuerat telemedicinsystem som kan användas som ett substitut för de konsultationer mellan doktor och patient som sker i person. Nödvändiga tredjeparts komponenter och deras implementationer in ett system är beskrivna på en allmän användningsnivå. Resultatet är en webbapplikation som stödjer login och betalning via en pålitligt källa, bokning av möten och utförandet av dem med bild och ljud.

Den presenterade prototypen är en fortsättning på en telemedicinsk webbapplikationsidé som lagts på is av ett företag som redan erbjuder lösningar för hälsokontroll och blodanalys.
