About Telemedicine

Telehealth is the delivery of health-related services and information via telecommunications technologies.

Telehealth delivery could be as simple as two health professionals discussing a case over the telephone or as sophisticated as using technology to transmit vital signs between providers to determine the diagnosis and treatment plan for a patient.

The key functionality of any Telemedical encounter is documentation of the decisions based on clinical information received.

It is essential to populate the patient record with this information which can then be shared amongst healthcare professionals to ensure the best outcome for the patient.
