About Telehealth

Telehealth connects patients to vital health care services through videoconferencing, remote monitoring, electronic consults, and wireless communications. It has expanded access into rural and underserved communities and helped those who might otherwise wait weeks for care or travel long distances. Patients in urban and suburban areas, especially those with chronic disease and without reliable transportation, also benefit. Hospitals and health systems continue to invest in technology, training, and patient education to ensure these innovations continue expanding access to care.
