Telemedicine and Just-in-Time telepsychiatry staffing
After 30 years of telemedicine research there is still some mystery about telemedicine. Though the mystery for clinicians is strongly moving away from defining what it is to figuring out how one would apply it successfully and profitably. Here is where we hope to clear up some of that confusion. If you would like more information, click the contact link at the top of the page or go to our contact page.
What is Telemedicine?
According to the American Telemedicine Association (ATA), "telemedicine is the use of medical information exchanged from one site to another via electronic communications to improve a patient’s clinical health status. Telemedicine includes a growing variety of applications and services using two-way video, email, smart phones, wireless tools and other forms of telecommunications technology."
