Telemedicine is proving to be a groundbreaking approach to healthcare delivery, providing numerous benefits for patients and their families. By leveraging technology to bridge the gap between patients and healthcare providers, it offers enhanced accessibility, same-day appointments and valuable support for geriatric patients and their caregivers.
Telemedicine facilitates medical professionals in providing medical care to patients outside of the traditional office setting by using modern technology. “Telemedicine” and “telehealth” are often used interchangeably. However, telehealth specifically describes the electronic and communications technologies being used to provide services remotely. Telemedicine can be viewed as the professional medical consultations you may receive remotely or outside of the clinical office.
