Nature Of Telehealth: Telehealth is the use of electronic information and communication technologies to enable a healthcare provider and a patient at different locations to share medical information, including, for example, for the purpose of evaluation and consultation regarding certain healthcare screening results. The delivery of healthcare via telehealth allows the patient and provider to establish a relationship, much as they would during a traditional face-to-face appointment.
