Medical practitioners have long recognized potential contributions that tele-health (also referred to as tele-medicine or tele-practice) can make regarding equitable access of services, especially in rural and remote populations (Scalvini, et al., 2004). Tele-health has become integral to many hospitals to (1) increase patient access to care, (2) enable health care providers to connect with patients, (3) provide consultation, health monitoring, mental health services, education, pharmacological services, and (4) offer counselling. According to American Hospital Association (2015), 52% of hospitals utilized some form of tele-health in 2013, and the number of hospitals and other medical institutions adopting tele-health approaches is expected to increase in the coming years.
