About the Program

An array of healthcare stakeholders – from payers to providers to drug developers – are increasingly joining forces with telehealth companies to expand access to “socially distant” care. Simply defined, telemedicine allows patients to communicate with a healthcare provider using technology, as opposed to physically visiting a doctor’s office or hospital.

With telemedicine, one can discuss symptoms, medical issues, and more with a healthcare provider in real time using video, online portals, and email. Using telemedicine, one can receive a diagnosis, learn his or her treatment options, and get a prescription. In cases where it’s necessary, healthcare providers can even monitor readings from medical devices remotely to keep an eye on patient’s condition.

There are three common types of telemedicine:

  • Interactive medicine: Also called “live telemedicine,” this is when physicians and patients communicate in real time.
  • Remote patient monitoring: This allows caregivers to monitor patients who use mobile medical equipment to collect data on things like blood pressure, blood sugar levels, etc.
  • Store and forward: Providers can share a patient’s health information with other healthcare professionals or specialists.

Since the 1950s, healthcare providers have been offering remote services. Telemedicine first began on landline telephones. With the advancement of technology, telemedicine has grown to offer services in a variety of ways. This includes online portals managed by your personal physician, video software that allows for remote consultations, and apps managed by companies offering telemedicine services like GoodRx Care.
