What is Telehealth?
Telehealth, also known as telemedicine, is the provision of health care, health information, and health education across a distance, using telecommunication technology, and specially adapted equipment. It allows physicians, nurses, and health care specialists to assess, diagnose and treat patients without requiring both individuals to be physically located in the same place.
