“GLM 40” Highlight in Health: Telemedicine

Our GLM staff have selected Telemedicine as an honorable highlight in the area of Health.  Telemedicine is the use of telecommunication and information technology to provide clinical health care from a distance. It has been used to overcome distance barriers and to improve access to medical services that would often not be consistently available in distant rural communities. It is also used to save lives in critical care and emergency situations. Telemedicine has become a critical part of military health while supporting service members in remote locations and austere environments. This technological advance in healthcare has allowed providers to expand their reach and connection to their patients. This is the modern day country “doc” making their house calls and affecting many lives on a bigger such a broader scale. We are proud to recognize Telemedicine in the area of Health in our 2018 “GLM 40” Highlights Edition!
