What Is Telemedicine?

Telemedicine is the exchange of medical information from one site to another through electronic communications. This is done for the purpose of improving a person’s health. Telemedicine has been around for over 40 years. It is a rapidly growing field. It can be very difficult to get an appointment with primary care doctors and specialists. The waiting list can be long and even getting a referral doesn’t guarantee a quick appointment. Telemedicine can help bring you and the doctor together more efficiently.
