Telehealth encompasses a broad variety of technologies and tactics to deliver virtual medical, health, and education services. Telehealth is not a specific service, but a collection of means to enhance care and education delivery.

CCHP and other members of the National Consortium of Telehealth Resource Centers finalized a Telehealth Definition Framework to help policy makers, practitioners, payers, and the public understand how to accurately apply “telehealth” and its key components.
