Internal Medicine and Telemedicine

Telemedicine is the use of medical information exchanged from one site to another via electronic communications to improve the patient’s clinical health status. Telemedicine includes a growing variety of applications and the services using two-wa video, email, smart phones, wireless tools and the other forms of telecommunications technology. Starting out over 40 years ago with demonstrations of hospitals extending care to the patients in remote areas, use of telemedicine has spread rapidly and is now becoming integrated into the on-going operations of hospitals, specialty departments, home health agencies, private physician offices as well as consumer’s homes and workplaces.  Products and services that are related to telemedicine are often part of a larger investment done by healthcare institutions in either information technology or the delivery of clinical care.
