Overview

About this course

Telemedicine uses technology to provide medical care remotely, utilizing a telecommunications network to connect patients and healthcare providers located at different sites. Telehealth on the other hand encompasses a wide range of electronic and telecommunications technologies designed to facilitate the delivery of healthcare services such as online doctor consultation, health, administrative, and educational services from a distance.
