The Success of Telehealth Care in the Indian Health Service

Copyright
2014

This journal article discusses the success of telehealth care with Indian Health Service and tribal health care facilities, which are overwhelmingly located in rural and isolated settings with little access to specialty services. Travel costs to bring patients to specialists, or vice versa, in locations such as the northern plains, desert southwest, and Alaska are prohibitive. Telemedicine is therefore an ideal if not essential component of care delivery if the IHS is to accomplish its mission in these locations.
