Telehealth / Telemedicine
The Health Resources Services Administration defines Telehealth as the use of electronic information and telecommunications technologies to support long-distance clinical health care, patient and professional health-related education, public health and health administration. Technologies include videoconferencing, the internet, store-and-forward imaging, streaming media, and terrestrial and wireless communications.
CSI’s Health System Kiosks feature Telehealth technology, which allows for diagnosis, treatment, and monitoring of an individual’s health, and CSI’s Video Conferencing Solution provides live-interactive videoconferencing that can be used in all settings for direct connectivity between a Physician and a patient.
CSI’s Health System Kiosks also provide access to an individual’s PHR / EMR so a Physician can perform a virtual “house call” when an individual’s information – not the individual – needs to be in front of a Physician.
Telehealth is different from telemedicine because it refers to a broader scope of remote healthcare services than telemedicine. While telemedicine refers specifically to remote clinical services, telehealth can refer to remote non-clinical services, such as provider training, administrative meetings, and continuing medical education, in addition to clinical services.
Healthcare has never been easier or more convenient, and CSI provides the equipment, technology, and tools to make certain individuals receive medical assistance when they need it … where they need it.Contact Us.
