Telehealth vs. Telemedicine
Many people use the terms “telehealth” and “telemedicine” interchangeably, but they actually refer to two different things. It makes sense to begin by asking what telehealth is, since it’s the broader of the two. Telehealth involves using technology to improve the overall healthcare delivery model. For example, this might include remotely holding trainings, conducting administrative meetings, and teaching continuing medical education classes.
So, what is telemedicine? Telemedicine is a subset of telehealth that specifically focuses on remotely providing patients with healthcare services and education. Our Virtual Visits qualify as telemedicine.
