Due to demographic changes and aging in the German population combined with the shortage of doctors, new techniques are needed to ensure urological patient care in the future. Telemedicine offers great potential to facilitate patient monitoring in their familiar surroundings and to ameliorate patient's compliance with the suggested therapy concept. Through optimal and reliable transfer of patient data, telemedicine helps to optimise patient satisfaction with urological therapies, binds them to their doctor and raises diagnostic safety. For a successful use of telemedicine, detailed education of participating patients and urologists as well as detailed fault monitoring are required.
