What is Telehealth?

The World Health Organization (WHO) defines Telehealth as health care services that use telecommunications and virtual technology to deliver health care outside of traditional health-care facilities.

These technologies include videoconferencing, the internet, store-and-forward imaging, streaming media, and terrestrial and wireless communications.
