Telemedicine is the union of healthcare and telecommunication/information technology aimed at providing assistance to individuals in remote areas, inaccessible to health care centers in times of need. It substantially decreases expenses. Telemedicine's most significant element is that it is capable of addressing patients' requirements at all times from anywhere. E-Health is the use of information and communication technologies to facilitate health improvement and health care services. It needs improved documentation and tracking of patients’ health and procedures performed on patients for reimbursement purposes by insurance companies. Beneficial impacts include the use by physicians of computerized drug-ordering systems that can reduce the risk of adverse drug events through decision support systems.
