Telemedicine, also commonly known as telehealth, is transforming the delivery of health care beyond traditional face-to-face interaction by enabling providers to deliver convenient, high quality, low-cost care.
Telemedicine services provide patients easier, more convenient access to their health care providers when they most need timely answers, whether the patient is in a rural setting with limited access to a health provider or in a care facility seeking more comprehensive answers.
Additionally, by leveraging these technologies, our experts at Johns Hopkins can easily collaborate with specialists in other locations to ensure our patients are receiving the highest multidisciplinary care anywhere in the world. Telemedicine services also enable providers to efficiently treat more patients in need, consult with other experts to provide better diagnoses, and reduce overall health care costs.
The Office of Telemedicine
The Office of Telemedicine works with payors and leading clinical experts across Johns Hopkins Medicine to provide high-quality, coordinated, personalized care to those in need – whether they’re down the hall or on the other side of the world. Just like an in-person consultation, patient information and safety is paramount – each transmission is secure and compliant with all traditional privacy regulations.
