Telemedicine is a health service intervention involving the remote communication of information for clinical care. Now in its second edition, this revised text meets a growing need for a straightforward overview of telemedicine. Rather than presenting telemedicine as the application of a specific technology, the authors are explicit about the health service dimension, the types of services, and the building blocks required — indeed most useful for an audience of health care workers considering telemedicine.
