Telehealth is defined as the use of electronic information and telecommunications technologies to support long-distance clinical healthcare needs of patients, clients, professional health-related education, public health and health administration.

Telehealth encompasses four distinct domains of applications.

Live video (synchronous): Live, two-way interaction between a person (patient, caregiver, or provider) and a provider using audiovisual telecommunications technology.  This type of service is also referred to as “real-time” and may serve as a substitute for an in-person encounter when it is not available.  

Store-and-forward (asynchronous): Transmission of recorded health history (for example, pre-recorded videos and digital images such as x-rays and photos) through a secure electronic communications system to a practitioner, usually a specialist, who uses the information to evaluate the case or render a service outside of a real-time or live interaction. As compared to a real-time visit, this service provides access to data after it has been collected, and involve communication tools such as secure email. 

Remote patient monitoring (RPM): Personal health and medical data collection from an individual in one location via electronic communication technologies, which is transmitted to a provider (sometimes via a data processing service) in a different location for use in care and related support.

MHealth technology uses devices such as smart phones  and portable monitoring sensors that transmit information to providers, as well as dedicated application software (apps), which are downloaded onto devices.
