Telehealth is “the use of communications and information technology to deliver health services and exchange health information when distance separates the participants.”[Elford, 1998].
Many technologies are used for telehealth including: telephones, videophones, personal computers (PCs), videoconferencing systems, store and forward systems (S&F) and specialized telehealth workstations.
A telehealth system is made of the following components:
- Hardware, e.g. computer, workstation and peripherals. Peripheral devices are the devices that are connected to a workstation and allow the local health professional to capture clinical images, video, sounds and vitals, such as otoscope, electronic stethoscope, and general exam camera.
- Software installed on the workstation,
- Database to store patient information,
- Network or telecommunications link,
- Humans e.g. users, clinicians and patients,
- Policies and protocols.

An information system (IS) is defined as the organized combination of people, hardware, software, communication networks, and data resources that collects, stores, processes, transforms, displays, transmits disseminates and disposes information in accordance with defined procedures.
- Disposition: the act or means of getting rid of something.
- Dissemination: the distribution of information broadly.
- Processing: the manipulation of data in accordance with established instructions, manually or by computer. Processing by computer is the manipulation of data in accordance with its instructions, or programming.
- Transmission: the process of sending information from one point to another.
An IS may be automated (e.g., a computerized information system) or manual (e.g., a library’s card catalog).
Any IS is made of 6 components: hardware, software, data/database, network, policies and procedures and people.
An Information System (IS) consists of six components, namely:
- Humans, which consists of IT specialists (such as a Database Administrator or Network Engineer) and end-users (such as doctors, nurses, etc…).
- Hardware, which consists of all the physical aspects of an information system, ranging from peripherals to computer parts and servers.
- Software, which consists of System Software, Application Software and Utility Software.
- Networks, which consists of communication media and network support.
- Data, which consists of all the knowledge and databases in the IS.
- Policies and procedures that governs the utilization, use and management of the information system.
Adverse Events are ‘instances which indicate or may indicate that a patient has received poor quality care’ . An AE is defined as ‘an injury that was caused by medical management (rather than the underlying disease) and that prolonged the hospitalization, produced a disability at the time of discharge, or both’ .
The Quality in Australia Health Care Study revealed that 16.6% of admissions were associated with an ‘adverse event’, which resulted in either disability or a longer hospital stay for the patient and was caused by health-care management. In 13.7% of these cases the disability was permanent and in 4.9% the patient died . In UK, a study found that 10.8% of admitted patients experienced an AE .
In UK and Australia, about half of AE cases were considered preventable [15, 16]. The Hospitals for Europe’s Working Party on Quality Care in Hospitals estimated in 2000 that 10% of patients in European hospitals suffer from preventable harm and adverse effects related to his or her care . An Australian study found that 17% of postoperative cases in a teaching hospital experienced at least one serious AE and that 7% of postoperative cases ended in the death of patient . In Canada, it is estimated that the overall incidence rate of AEs is 7.5% of hospital admissions and that 37% of these AEs are potentially preventable .
In France, the incidence of AEs was estimated at 6.6 per 1000 hospital days in 2004, from which 24.1% were Hospital Acquired Infections.20 In Germany, the Dutch Patient Safety Research Program showed that AEs affect 5.7% of patients in Dutch hospitals .

- “The Electronic Health Record (EHR) is a secure, real-time, point-of-care, patient-centric information resource for clinicians. The EHR aids clinicians’ decision making by providing access to patient health record information where and when they need it and by incorporating evidence-based decision support. The EHR automates and streamlines the clinician’s workflow, closing loops in communication and response that result in delays or gaps in care. The EHR also supports the collection of data for uses other than direct clinical care, such as billing, quality management, outcomes reporting, resource planning, and public health disease surveillance and reporting.” HIMSS Electronic Health Record – Definitional Model Version 1.1 – 2003
- “A longitudinal collection of personal health information of a single individual, entered or accepted by health care providers, and stored electronically. The record may be made available at any time to providers, who have been authorized by the individual, as a tool in the provision of health care services. The individual has access to the record and can request changes to its content. The transmission and storage of the record is under strict security.” Federal/Provincial/ Territorial Advisory Committee on Health Infostructure (2001)
