Telehealth is the use of electronic information and telecommunications technologies to support long-distance clinical health care, professional health-related education, and health administration. Telehealth encompasses 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, configuring medical education and nursing call centers are all considered part of Telehealth.
Telemedicine, a subset of Telehealth, it's the use of medical information exchanged from one site to another via electronic communications to improve patients' health status.
