 BOOK ABOUT TELEHEALTH NOW AVAILABLE



This book is available in hard copy and as an e-book*. What is it about?

  • Canada was an early adopter of telehealth and e-health  due to the large distances that separated people from medical advice and health professionals far away. 
  • Today, telehealth is more than simply connecting patients and providers over large distances: 
  • Telehealth combined with e-health:  
  •     facilitates emergency rescues and access to information
  •     through teletriage, provides health care advice online or by phone
  •     permits monitoring at home for patients with chronic diseases, 
  •     helps seniors live at home independently,
  •     shortens wait times to diagnosis and treatment,
  •     increases personal awareness of healthy lifestyles
  •     permits digital images to be stored, retrieved and transferred across the miles 
  •     shortens or replaces hospital stays
  •     accelerates access to advice, information and care.
  • Through many examples - from emergency rescues at sea to tele-counselling from home and self-monitoring, the book shows the impact telehealth is having on patients and health professionals worldwide.
  • The examples and stories in this book will surprise even knowledgeable and experienced practitioners.
