Rapid advances in technology have drastically changed how we communicate with each other—and with our doctors! One of the most profound improvements provided by advances in technology is telemedicine. Telemedicine is an incredible method of providing healthcare quickly and efficiently through fast communication between a patient and physician or practitioner.

- What is Telemedicine
Telemedicine, also commonly referred to as telehealth, is the use of audiovisual equipment to provide health assessment, diagnosis, intervention, consultation and supervision with a physician over distance, rather than meeting in person. Some of the common technologies of telemedicine include videoconferencing over the internet and wireless communication.
Telemedicine has proven to be a powerful tool for reaching patients in remote regions, patients who are immobile and patients who are at risk of disease and can more easily receive healthcare attention at home.
- Benefits of Telemedicine
Telemedicine has many great benefit for both the patient and practitioner. Telemedicine is generally more cost effective than face-to-face consultations and examinations. Because patients can consult with their doctor from home, it is much easier for elderly patients and those with mobility restrictions to get the care they need.
Telemedicine is also valuable for preventing the transmission of infectious diseases. This is incredibly important for the safety of elderly individuals and those who are immunocompromised.
- Forms of Telemedicine
Telemedicine can take many different forms depending on each patient’s needs and the technology available to both the patient and physician. For many patients, live videoconferencing with a physician is the preferred approach, but it is not the only one. There are four common approaches to telemedicine, as described below.
- Videoconferencing: Live audiovisual connection between patient and healthcare provider.
- Store-and-forward: Medical data is recorded and then transmitted to a healthcare professional for review.
- Remote patient monitoring (RPM): Connected electronic tools monitor patient health and medical data, and then transmit that data to a healthcare professional for review.
- Mobile health (mHealth): Healthcare and public health notifications are provided through mobile devices.
- Is Telemedicine Covered By Insurance?
Many states require insurance providers to cover telemedicine, but not all of them. As telemedicine grows more popular, more states, insurance companies and physicians are incorporating it, but each with varying rules and restrictions.
To ensure that you are covered, please speak with both your insurance provider and your telemedicine provider of choice.
