Telemedicine has opened up a new chapter in the field of medical care where specialized specialists are available to provide mobile health care services in collaboration with a clinic or hospital setting. This technology has made it possible for many patients who travel between distant locations to gain access to medical care and has also made possible the transfer of medical history and life history information from one specialist to another. Many specialists utilize telemedicine equipment and diagnostic software to provide on-site or remote consultation or diagnosis of certain conditions or diseases. With the assistance of specialized clinical documentation, the entire life history of a patient can be tracked through the electronic medical records (EMR) of a particular patient.
There are many companies that provide specialty telehealth services to provide mobile health care services to a wide range of community health professionals such as physicians, surgeons, nurses, dental practitioners, physician’s assistants, and physical therapists.
