Course Overview

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.
