TELEHEALTH (TELEMEDICINE)

Telehealth (Telemedicine) is a term used to define the technology doctors, nurses, and patients use to aid in long-distance healthcare. Telehealth applications generally fall into three categories.

Store-and-forward applications allow providers to capture and share patient images and data outside of the patient’s healthcare facility. Remote monitoring applications involve the use of sensors and alerts that transmit patient data to a healthcare provider. This eliminates the need for the patient to frequently visit the healthcare facility and also allows the provider to monitor patient conditions in real time. This is especially useful on chronic disease management applications. Finally, interactive telehealth solutions allow providers and patients to interact in real time using wireless, video, and remote diagnostic technologies. These interactive applications can be especially useful when providers and patients are separated by great distances or in rural settings.
