Telemedicine is any kind of interactive healthcare work done from a distance; it is a growing facet of the modern healthcare landscape with more than half of American hospitals supporting some form of telemedicine. This can be the sharing of electronic data, video conferencing, or a simple phone call. Telemedicine is a supplement to face-to-face visits rather than a replacement for them. Although certain specialties or allied health clinicians may work exclusively via video conference and other virtual tools, the patient still must be assessed regularly in person by a provider. This module provides healthcare providers with information about telemedicine, including types of telemedicine, clinical usage, and supporting technologies.


The goal of this program is to provide healthcare providers with information about telemedicine, including types of telemedicine, clinical usage, and supporting technologies. After studying the information presented here, you will be able to:
  • Describe two kinds of telemedicine
  • Discuss ways in which telemedicine supports interprofessional or interdisciplinary care
  • Identify three technologies involved with telemedicine practice
