Telehealth is a rapidly evolving adjunct to the healthcare environment providing numerous benefits on many levels. This approach has branched out into many areas including virtual physician visits, access to allied health specialties and therapies, and patient monitoring for prophylactic and post care. Today’s healthcare environment can see telehealth use through technological avenues such as video conferencing, the internet, imaging transmission, streaming media, portals, remote application use and monitoring devices. While these benefits can be felt by many stakeholders, there are also numerous risks to this growing field. While the documented benefits to this technology are numerous and well documented, do these benefits of telehealth outweigh the security risks?
