What is Telemedicine
Telemedicine is fundamentally transforming the way we provide and receive medical services. Telemedicine is the use of video, email, telephone, or other telecommunication solutions to transmit medical information, i.e. clinical consultations between a doctor and patient.
Telemedicine has the potential to significantly improve patient care by providing doctors with easier access to patients and their health data. Taking advantage of new developments in telehealth technology and lowered telecommunication costs, the rapid expansion of telemedicine over the next decade is expected to substantially impact the delivery of healthcare services throughout the country.
