What is Telemedicine?
Telemedicine is the combined use of hardware devices and software platforms that enable clinicians and providers to evaluate, diagnose, and treat patients through connected devices. The software platforms include real-time video conferencing and store-and-forward functions. Remote healthcare practitioners can capture and transmit medical data to share with patients, peers, and medical specialists across town or around the globe.
Telemedicine is Evolving Rapidly
The telemedicine industry is evolving rapidly as demand for patient access to healthcare grows exponentially. The Department of Veterans Affairs is leading the way in changing healthcare as it announced its new “Anywhere to Anywhere, VA Healthcare” initiative, which include regulation changes and new programs that removes geographical boundaries and makes telemedicine a standard service offering to veterans. GlobalMed is proud to be a part of the telemedicine evolution. Click here to see the full White House press conference with the VA.

I can do everything but touch the patient…I see a lot of the studies that say telemedicine is equivalent to being there. But, I actually think there is a case for saying at times telemedicine is better than being there.Kathleen WebsterChair, Pediatric Special Interest Group at American Telemedicine Association
