Telemedicine

Telemedicine is the use of electronic communications to exchange medical information from one site to another to improve a patient's clinical health status. It helps eliminate distance barriers and can improve access to medical services that would often not be consistently available in distant and rural areas. Telemedicine includes a growing variety of technology using email, smart phones, two-way video, and other wireless tools for the purpose of consulting, and sometimes remote medical procedures or examinations.

It is closely allied with the term health information technology (HIT). However, HIT refers to electronic medical records and related health information while telemedicine refers to the actual delivery of remote clinical services using technology.

Overall, telemedicine is very cost efficient, it can increase efficiency through better management of chronic diseases, reduce travel times, and cause fewer or shorter hospital stays.
