New technologies such as telehealth help improve health care services. For technology to work it must work for the people it is meant to help – patients and the professionals providing care.
Telehealth in VA helps ensure veteran patients get the right care in the right place at the right time and aims to make the home into the preferred place of care, whenever possible.
The internet is rich with peer-to-peer healthcare forums and medical FAQs websites. Each day, patients connect with one another online to share medical experiences, discuss symptoms, and ask for advice on chronic conditions and treatments. Secure online video sessions offer friendly conversations that diminish patient discomfort and establish trust in your brand.
Remote patient monitoring
In remote monitoring, the patient has a central system that feeds information from sensors and monitoring equipment, e.g. blood pressure monitors and blood glucose meters, to an external monitoring center. This could be done in either real time or the data could be stored and then forwarded. 
Examples of remote monitoring include:
Telehealth also provides opportunities for health care professionals in remote locations to receive training. In the United States, the Extension for Community Healthcare Outcomes or ECHO project uses a telehealth platform to help urban medical center specialists train primary care doctors in rural settings. The training allows these general practitioners to provide specialty care, especially chronic condition services, that would otherwise be unavailable to patients in these areas.
