Home tele-health is the remote care delivery or monitoring between a healthcare provider and a patient.
There are two types of tele-health:
Phone monitoring is the most basic form of telehealth. Phone monitoring is the scheduled remote care delivery or monitoring in which scheduled patient encounters via the telephone occur between a health care provider and a patient or care giver. Phone monitoring does not use electronic information processing technologies.
Unlike phone monitoring which requires only phone communication between the health care provider and patient/care giver, tele-monitoring requires the use of technology and equipment. Tele-monitoring includes the collection of clinical data and the transmission of such data between a patient at a distant location and a health care provider through electronic information processing technologies.
