6.2.2. Store and forward or Asynchronous

Asynchronous telehealth refers to the storage of clinically important digital samples and relevant data from any location and forwarding them to a health care professional at a distant site for assessment at a convenient time [8]. It is also known as store-and-forward telehealth. With the widespread

penetration of the Internet, the reduction in cost of data storage and the proliferation of digital cameras, patients who own Web cameras could request routine consultations with health professionals from home. Telephones with cameras are making multimedia teleconsultations possible from anywhere [9].
