Telehealth is a new form of remote healthcare that uses modern communication technologies like phone, video chat, email, and text message to assist patient care. While rudimentary forms have existed since the advent of the telephone, within the last 10 to 15 years, the field has evolved rapidly to leverage electronic healthcare’s potential for communities worldwide. In an effort to establish a more robust framework for digital healthcare in the cancer care space, the National Cancer Institute, part of the National Institutes of Health, is laying down $23 million to four organizations to fund research efforts. The funding aims better to understand telehealth operations in an ever-increasingly digital landscape to provide broader healthcare access to those who may have a harder time getting face-to-face treatment.
