Rheuban, K. S., & Krupinski, E. A. (2018). Understanding telehealth. New York: McGraw-Hill Education

  • Available in Access Medicine

To help support healthcare professionals and clinicians through this growing emphasis toward telehealth, McGraw-Hill has published Understanding Telehealth which is available through Access Medicine.  The brand new title will provide clarity on existing standards and principles in telehealth, describe how it is being used clinically in specialty areas ranging from Neurology to High-Risk Obstetrics, and provide supporting clinical vignettes to put these concepts into context.  Other topics include the use of telehealth in school/childcare centers and humanitarian initiatives, as well as a summary of the existing framework of both state and federal policy and other regulatory issues.  The sampling of topics showcases the book's relevance for a broad range of stakeholders, from nurses to healthcare executives.

The book is authored by former presidents of the American Telemedicine Association, the only existing accrediting body for telehealth that helps provide standardization and is actively involved in reform surrounding the use of telemedicine.  The remarkable list of expert contributors spans nearly all specialties and includes individuals from Harvard speaking to Neurology and Stroke, the University of Queensland (Australia) discussing telerehabilitation, and a retired US Army colonel now practicing at the University of Pittsburgh speaking to the use of telemedicine in the Department of Defense..
