What is Telehealth?
Telehealth solutions come in all shapes and sizes. Telehealth software allows healthcare professionals to deliver health services, education or training, and health information remotely, using telecommunications technology. Unlike telemedicine solutions, which focus more specifically on clinical services, telehealth solutions cover a broader range health services. Health professionals might use a telehealth solution to train healthcare staff, engage and educate patients about a preventative health topic online, or remotely monitor a patient’s recovery after hospital discharge.
The key focus of many of these telehealth software solutions? Leveraging telecommunications technologies to make health and information services more convenient and efficient. And of course, increasing the quality of patient care and raising patient engagement. Telehealth tools can be an incredibly powerful way of making widespread healthcare and health education more accessible – especially to remote parts of the U.S. and the world.
