Telemedicine is the use of medical information exchanged from one site to another via electronic communications to improve a patient’s clinical health status. Today we use this for many purposes in the U.S and threw out the whole world. A good example of a time when we used this is during the Haiti crisis, the power was out all over and this was one of the only ways we could reach anyone for help medical wise.
Health Care can be more accessible to those who live a more rural life style. It has greater outcomes health wise, its has know to be very successful. It is a more cheaper way of having a low costing health care. It actually is a good lesson to teach to rising doctors cause they may use it one day. It can be available to patients who live far away from any hospital.
