Undoubtedly, healthcare has changed enormously in the last months leading to the almost inflationary use of terms like telemedicine or telehealth. Both sound similar, but what do they actually mean?
Telemedicine, a term already used in the 1970s, stands literally for “healing at a distance” and signifies the use of technology (i.e., phones) to improve patients’ health outcomes by increasing access to care and information.
Whereas Telehealth describes an array of services and technologies that transform the way health and care are delivered. Telehealth refers to many examples, such as videoconferencing, work optimization software, messengers, remote monitoring devices, etc.
