FREMONT, CA: Telemedicine is a type of healthcare delivery that uses electronic systems and telecommunication technology to provide care remotely. Digitally mediated services are backed by direct communications. Telemedicine, according to the World Health Organization (WHO), is the delivery of healthcare services by all healthcare professionals using information and communication technologies for the exchange of valid information for the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of disease and injuries, research and evaluation, and continuing education of healthcare providers, all in the interests of advancing the health of individuals and their coworkers, where distance is a critical factor.

Many countries throughout the world have experienced a movement toward phone and video consultations, which eases the strain of having to travel large distances for health issues that may be addressed right where you are. Patients have been sent home with equipment such as pulse oximeters and self-management guidelines in order to reduce the burden on healthcare systems and reduce the number of patients in hospitals who are likely to have infections and other issues. Telehealth services prevented the transmission of covid-19 to health care practitioners and others seeking assistance during the outbreak. Furthermore to allow physical distancing while monitoring and talking with patients, some hospitals have adopted robots and tablet computers.

This has not only been a health tool, but it has also improved education in the health-care system around the world. Telemedicine has been found in studies to increase patient self-management and overall clinical outcomes while also promoting continuity of care, including post-hospital care. Telemedicine has boosted potential in the tech sector to develop reliable materials which can be used in mobile medical applications for phones, wearable devices like watches, instrumented (smart) houses, and other areas. To improve E-health, many more technologies are being researched and developed.
