HC 4315 - Telehealth
Access to proper medical facilities presents a gap in quality healthcare, particularly for certain populations and specialties. The advantages and challenges of telehealth services to address these issues are presented. Special focus is placed on how communication, innovative technology, safety and efficiency are addressed through telehealth as access and distance become less of a barrier. Regulatory, legislative and political considerations regarding telehealth implementation are discussed. Students evaluate business and technology infrastructure models required to support telehealth services. Students compare stories of patient reaction to telehealth as a primary or secondary means of access to care.
