Telemedicine and telehealth (TM/TH) are the 2 terms used interchangeably focusing on the delivery of health care services at a long distance using telecommunication technology. TM/TH has several gynecologic applications, including the well-woman visits, preventive care, preconception counseling, family planning including contraception and medical abortion, infertility workup, teleradiology, cervical cancer screening and colposcopy, mental health, and telesurgery. The goals of TM/TH are not only improving quality of health care in patients and building a virtual community of physicians but also increasing convenience, efficacy, and decreasing medical cost. In gynecology, TM/TH plays an important role, especially in well-woman care. Copyright © 2020 Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved.
