What is Telemedicine?

Telemedicine is a form of medical practice that involves the use of telecommunication technologies, such as video conferencing, remote monitoring, and other electronic communication methods, to provide medical care and services to patients who are not physically present with the healthcare provider. Telemedicine allows for remote diagnosis, treatment, monitoring, and management of various health conditions, and can be particularly useful in providing medical care to patients in remote or underserved areas, improving access to care, reducing travel and wait times, and increasing convenience for patients and providers. 

Telemedicine can encompass a wide range of medical services, including primary care, specialty care, mental health services, follow-up visits, and consultations. It may involve real-time interactions between patients and healthcare providers, or asynchronous communications, such as secure messaging or virtual visits. Telemedicine is becoming increasingly popular and widely used, particularly with advancements in technology and the growing demand for remote healthcare services.
