Telehealth is the use of electronic information and telecommunications technology to support the delivery of health, health education, public health and health administration. The Telehealth Fact Sheets developed with input from the membership of National Organization of State Offices of Rural Health (NOSORH), Educational Exchange Committee and the Telehealth Resource Centers, focus on five different areas related to commonly asked questions by rural communities. The fact sheets include information on telehealth policy barriers, reimbursement and vendor selection.
