What is telepractice?

ASHA defines telepractice (a.k.a. telemedicine or telehealth) as the application of telecommunications technology to the delivery of speech language pathology and audiology professional services at a distance. It links clinician to client (or clinician to clinician) for assessment, intervention, and/or consultation. 

“Patient consultations via video conferencing, transmission of still images, e-health including patient portals, remote monitoring of vital signs, continuing medical education, consumer-focused wireless applications and nursing call centers, among other applications, are all considered part of telemedicine and telehealth." (American Telemedicine Association, 2014).
