Telehealth in rural areas

Telehealth is a way to increase the standard of treatment and access in remote areas; however, there is little research about how Telehealth affects the partnership between hospital and community. Using telehealth in rural areas to provide and assist with the delivery of health services may mitigate or alleviate difficulties and burdens faced by patients, such as transport issues related to travel for speciality care. We can say that telehealth is the delivery of health care, health education, and health information services via remote technologies. Telehealth is the use of emerging devices for information and communication, such as computers and smartphones, to easily access health facilities and control your health care.
