Abstract

Legislation such as the Affordable Care Act has changed the national perspective on the healthcare industry. In today’s society we see a heavier emphasis on the use and need for the integration of technology in business practices. Efficiency is driven by technology. Technology has driven the streamlining of processes and encouraged organizations to apply innovative solutions in order to improve the organizations operations. In healthcare we have seen the implementation of surgical robots, electronic medical record systems, pharmaceutical solutions that alert physicians of medication interactions and track dispenses and a host of other technology solutions. A new developing solution that is continuing to gain traction and acceptance throughout the industry is telemedicine and telehealth. Telemedicine and telehealth are crucial new services that are needed. They are significant to the field of public health because the use of these remote clinical services increases the access to and quality of care for all people. Also, it is extremely relevant as the use of the tele-services, improve health outcomes which will lead to a positive qualitative and economic positioning for the country.
