Abstract

Telemedicine and telehealth programs are generally more complex than their traditional on-site health care delivery counterparts. A few organizations have developed sustainable, multispecialty telemedicine programs, but single service programs, such as teleradiology and teledermatology, are common. Planning and maintaining a successful telemedicine program is challenging, and there are often barriers to developing sustainable telehealth programs. This article reviews some important aspects of developing a telehealth program, and provides two examples of currently operating successful model programs.
