Session: Telehealth and Telemedicine

Telehealth and Telemedicine


Telehealth encompasses a wide range of electronic and telecommunications technologies and services that are used to deliver care and services over long distances. Telemedicine is a medical practice that uses technology to provide care to patients who are located far away. A telecommunications infrastructure allows a physician in one location to provide care to a patient in another location. Telehealth differs from telemedicine in that it covers a wider spectrum of remote medical services. Nonclinical services such as continuing medical education, provider training, and administrative meetings were labeled telehealth in the early days of the internet. Telemedicine, on the other hand, was originally defined as the use of electronic communications to deliver clinical services to patients without requiring them to visit a doctor's office or hospital.
