Telemedicine is the exchange of medical information from one location to another through electronic communication, which improves the health status of patients. Telemedicine has many uses and can be used for a variety of services, including wireless devices, smartphones, two-way video, email, and other types of telecommunications technology. Telemedicine needs no major outlay other than two things: a webcam, and a secure patient interface that links the doctor directly to a secure electronic medical record database. This ensures confidentiality, the ability to store the appropriate medical records, and connectivity. EHealth is a broad term that refers to the use of information and communication technology in healthcare.
