Currently, there is a lack of standard practice for postoperative follow-up for the patients during in-home recovery. After major operations, the involved patients fail to recognize or identify their wound complications before it gets complicated after getting discharge or do not show up for appointments due to time constraint. This is due to the lack of features like wound image capturing for remote monitoring, real-time monitoring or even appointment reminder in the systems that are being implemented in Malaysia. In conclusion, remote medicine has the potential to modernize healthcare. Holistic approaches involving healthcare professionals and early adopters are essential for successful implementation since Malaysians are still not very familiar with remote medicine.
