From the Introduction: "The use of information and communication technology (ICT) in the health care industry is an emergent issue for Congress. Traditionally, legislation on health care addressed issues related to in-person care provided in brick-and-mortar buildings. With ongoing innovations in health care delivery--such as the use of telehealth and telemedicine--health care services can occur outside of traditional brick-and-mortar medical buildings, for example, inside patients' homes. [...] This report provides responses to frequently asked questions about telehealth and telemedicine, serving as a quick reference with easy access to information. Where applicable, the report provides the legislative background pertaining to the question."
