Information and Advice about TeleHealth

General Information
TeleHealth or Telemedicine uses telecommunications technology to provide real-time health care to people at a distance, over the internet. The “real-time” part means you can converse naturally, unlike older technology which relied on email-type solutions, which could take hours or days between questions and answers.

How it Works
The method of communication varies. It might involve text messaging, phone conversation, or you can use an application allowing face-to-face contact with a smart phone, tablet or computer screen. This is preferred, as seeing the person you are having a conversation with allows for more and better communication.
