6.2.1.Real time or Synchronous

Real-time telehealth involves the use of information and communication technologies (e.g., a minimum set of video cameras, computer displays, and a secure high-speed Internet connection) to enable individuals to communicate live (or synchronously) over long and short distances [7]. Much simpler technologies could also be used for real-time support. For instance, the telephone can be a powerful tool to optimize

the assessment, planning, provision of information as well as support, evaluation, and documentation across long distances. (Government of the Northwest Territories Department of Health Policies and Guidelines for Community Health Nurses, Canada, 2008)
