How does telehealth work?

Telehealth, also referred to as telemedicine, is the modernization of the delivery of healthcare via remote clinical services. Telehealth technology has existed since the 1950s but has been making huge strides in the past decade or so due to the rapid technological advancements in areas like video software and communication.

Telehealth technology presents an opportunity for patients and providers to leverage technology to communicate without being in the same room. Types of telemedicine tools include phone calls, video chats, emails, and text messages.
