Defining Telemedicine

In today’s digitally-connected world, telemedicine is becoming more important than ever. According to the American Telemedicine Association (ATA) there are currently nearly 1 million Americans using remote cardiac monitors, and nearly half of U.S. hospitals use telemedicine in some form. Join us on Healthcare Matters as we explore the topic of telemedicine with Jonathan Terry, DO, ABIHM, an award-winning osteopathic physician and surgeon and general psychiatrist who uses telemedicine extensively in his practice.

In the first part of our series, Physician Focus: Telemedicine, we learn the definition of telemedicine, and the types of services that can be provided through telemedicine. Dr. Terry explains that telemedicine can assist in many aspects of medical care, including services like transmitting images to specialists for further analysis and providing patient portals and e-health services.
