Telehealth is also being referred to as telemedicine, e-health or virtual healthcare to improve a patient’s health by permitting two-way, real time interactive communication between the patient, and the physician or practitioner despite the time and location. Telemedicine has revolutionized the overall framework of healthcare considering the advances in communication technology in medical sciences. Telemedicine technology has provided the basis for information exchange, which is stored and maintained at a nominal cost by servers present at either the hospitals or the telemedicine service providers. Privacy is a major concern for both patients and medical institutions, and therefore data regulation is considered as a key driver for telemedicine industry. Telehealth uses computer-assisted telecommunications to support management, surveillance, literature and access to medical knowledge, while telemedicine uses telecommunications in order to diagnose and treat patients.
