The integration of telehealth modalities into clinical, research and education systems is an evolving area of health informatics. While many of these technology concepts are not novel, their applications in today’s healthcare ecosystem provide the opportunity for the development of high-quality, secure interactions to better support patients, caregivers and their providers. Important regulatory, professional and legislative guidelines have been established to guide the development of technologies and practices across various practice settings, geographic areas and patient populations. This chapter explores telehealth applications and innovations related to service development specific to the integration of telehealth into health informatics systems and in partnership with broader healthcare teams.
