Telehealth in Rural Hospitals : Lessons Learned from Pennsylvania (Paperback) (C. J. Rhoads)
about this item
Raising the quality of healthcare while lowering the cost and increasing accessibility in rural counties is an extremely challenging problem. Telehealth, an "umbrella" term for telemedicine, eHealth, telecare, mHealth, and telepsychiatry, has been proposed as a possible solution. This book reports the results and conclusions of a year-long investigation into all of the factors involved. Telehealth is the use of electronic information and telecommunications technologies to support long-distance clinical healthcare, patient and professional health-related education, public health, and health administration.
