What is Telemedicine?
Telemedicine is the electronic communication of medical information in the evaluation, diagnosis and treatment of patients in order to improve health. Through live web-based video visits and secure electronic messaging, telemedicine enhances patient engagement through convenient, easily scheduled physician encounters while significantly expanding access to quality physician care.
By bringing improved clinical reach, efficiency and quality to the practice of medicine, telemedicine is rapidly being integrated in health care systems. Patients enjoy the convenience and physicians are able to expand their reach and seamlessly monitor their long-term care. Telemedicine is health care without walls.
