Telemedicine services are typically delivered in one of three types, depending on the need, individual and health system. These types of telemedicine services include:

  1. Real-time interaction

  2. Remote monitoring

  3. Store-and-forward

Real-Time Interaction

In real-time interaction, medical professionals interact live with patients using secure video conferencing, chat, text or phone calls. Interaction in real time allows for two-way, face-to-face conversations with immediate responses. Genome Medical offers telegenetics services, such as specialized genetic counseling, by video and phone using real-time interaction.

Remote Monitoring

In remote monitoring, also called “remote patient monitoring,” medical professionals can monitor a patient at another location, such as at home after being discharged from the hospital. Technologies include electronic devices that collect and share medical data. Patients can monitor their own health and share that medical data with their health care provider using remote monitoring.

Store-and-Forward

In store-and-forward, medical information and data are shared between medical professionals or institutions in different locations to enhance patient care. For example, medical x-rays, MRI scans or photographs can be sent to remote medical specialists about a patient to help diagnose and treat that individual.
