Today´s Telemedicine and e-Health systems offer rich potential of supplementing traditional delivery of services and channels of communication in ways that extend the healthcare organization´s ability to meet the needs of its patients. Benefits include enhanced access to information and resources, empowerment of patients to make informed healthcare decisions, streamlined organizational processes and transactions, and improved quality, value, and patient satisfaction.
