The American Telemedicine Association defines telemedicine as “the use of medical information exchanged from one site to another via electronic communications to improve patients’ health status.”
Many patients find it difficult to travel to clinics, hospitals, or doctors’ offices for any number of reasons. Telemedicine can be a great option for patients with unique challenges or in situations making it difficult to receive traditional care. Many clinics embrace telemedicine as a way to reach more isolated or remote patients who would otherwise need to travel great distances.
Remote medical technology is an increasingly popular way to administer preventive medicine and manage chronic conditions. Research shows that using telehealth technologies results in many positive outcomes including fewer hospital readmissions, more faithful following of prescribed courses of treatment, and better recovery than that of patients not receiving remote intervention.
