Telehealth and Telemedicine – The Future of Rural Health Care
What is Telemedicine?
Telemedicine or Telehealth uses the Internet, Tablets and Computers to provide clinical healthcare to Rural Medical Facilities, Nursing Homes and Long Term Care Facilities. Think of Telemedicine as a “Virtual Doctor”. Telemedicine has been used to overcome geographical barriers and to improve community access to essential medical services that would often not be consistently available in rural communities, such as in the Rural Southern Appalachian Mountains of Western North Carolina and Eastern Tennessee. Telemedicine can be used to save lives in critical care and emergency situations!
