CSC: Teleservices for Better Health: Technology that brings Healthcare to the Patient

Providing health and care services at a distance — for instance through TeleCare, TeleHealth, TeleCoaching, and TeleMedicine — is an empowering idea in healthcare for patients at home and on the go. These technologies and services do more than just overcome geographical barriers and relieve patients and clinicians from the need to travel. They promote greater engagement by bringing key care activities directly to patients and giving them the self-service tools and data they need to become full partners in managing their health and lifestyle. With TeleServices, patients can cease being passive recipients of care and instead become active participants in decision-making, goal-setting, and the design and delivery of care.
