What is an example of some advantages of Telehealth?

Applying evidence to improve complex systems of health care for diverse populations at a community health facility. You have noticed a trend in which there is a high rate of patients who don’t show up for their appointments. Despite making reminder calls the day before, patients are still missing their appointments. During your problem-solving efforts, you begin to investigate more closely and discover that a large portion of the patients lack access to transportation. As a result, many have missed their appointments, which meant they haven’t updated their physician on important changes in their health, haven’t been able to get directions on adjusting their medications based on the changes, etc. 

You have determined that telehealth would be a good solution to this problem so people who have difficulty coming to the clinic in person can still have access to care.
