Course Overview

Telemedicine is any kind of interactive healthcare work being done from a distance and is a growing facet of the modern healthcare landscape. Telemedicine promotes continuity of care, reduces healthcare costs, and improves patient self-management and clinical outcomes. Yet more research is required to assess its overall impact on patient safety. A healthcare team approach, using telemedicine, can be effective when managing chronic diseases, such as diabetes, especially in rural communities. Although caring for people from a distance is not a new practice, the technological options associated with telemedicine have expanded considerably, and healthcare professionals may not be aware of or understand them.

The goal of this course is to information about telemedicine, including types, clinical usage, and supporting technologies.
