While opportunities for telehealth have been around for decades, the COVID-19 pandemic has catapulted its use to the forefront of care delivery as a method to protect both patients and health care workers and to reduce the burden on health systems.
The terms “telehealth” and “telemedicine” are often used interchangeably. Telehealth services are typically viewed more broadly than telemedicine, encompassing a wider scope of remove activities. Telemedicine can be considered a type of telehealth but refers specifically to remote clinical services such as diagnosis and treatment.
IHI has developed a list of resources to assist the health care community with implementation of telehealth services, particularly within the COVID-19 context
