Telemedicine encompasses all the different aspects of providing medical services to your patients remotely, whether this is over the phone or via online consultation. In addition to this, telemedicine tools can also be used to conduct multi-disciplinary team (MDT) conferences and other such activities.
Telemedicine represents an excellent opportunity for you to engage with patients who:
Have limited mobility
Live far away from you, e.g. abroad
Prefer the convenience of an online consultation
Cannot travel at present, e.g. social distancing, self-isolating
