Telehealth traditionally comprises of three major dimensions that are, real time telehealth services, store and forward communication systems and remote patient monitoring. Real time telehealth services enable a two way interaction between the healthcare provider and a patient or his caregiver through audio-visual mediums. These systems can be used to effectively consult, diagnose and treat the patients who are located at remote distances from the healthcare institution. By using store and forward communication systems, a patient’s recorded health history such as digital medical images like X-rays, pre-recorded videos and reports can be transmitted to the healthcare practitioner through a secure electronic communication system. This information can be vital for assessing the patient’s case. Such pre-recorded information can be of great help for patients who need specialty care when providers are not available locally. Remote patient monitoring refers to the collection and transmission of a patient’s medical data to a healthcare provider at a different location. This data enables the provider to track/monitor the health related parameters of that patient from a remote location. Apart from these three traditional dimensions, various other applications such as mHealth or mobile health serves, wearable devices to track wellness and health and different online services have flourished over the years.
