The development and implementation of telehealth is best accomplished through a thorough, deliberate planning process. The NRTRC provides the resources below as a quick start guide for health care organizations and clinicians whom wish to implement web-based video to interact with their patients. It does not cover other types of telehealth, such as store-and-forward or remote patient monitoring, or the use of other telehealth technologies such as telemedicine carts or medical peripherals. All of these are excellent and often appropriate means of caring for patients, but are not covered here.
