Telemedicine is the use of medical information exchanged from one site to another via electronic communications to improve patients’ health status. Closely associated with telemedicine is the term “telehealth,” which is often used to encompass a broader definition of remote healthcare that does not always involve clinical services. Videoconferencing, transmission of still images, e-health including patient portals, remote monitoring of vital signs, continuing medical education and nursing call centers are all considered part of telemedicine and telehealth.

The Center for Distance Health has several telemedicine programs to choose from and many others in the works. Please view our programs listed on the left hand side of this page. Are you interested in providing telemedicine services at your site? If so, please contact us at
