At this point, 'telehealth' really refers to 'telemedicine' - where medical doctors and patients are connected for a consultation.

From my experience in hospitals, on rotations, etc., a huge amount of care is carried out by nursing and allied health staff as well (of course this is common knowledge too). Could there be some benefit to having 'telenursing', or 'telephysio'? It seems like if we can bring doctors to rural and regional places via videoconferencing, surely there can be benefit for other health professions as well.

Are there examples of this? Could it be helpful? In what specific instances might 'telenursing' be a game-changer for patient follow-up and general care?
