Telehealth nursing: More than just a phone call

Answering healthcare questions over the phone is not a new concept. Dating back to the 1970s, office nurses have communicated via telephone to discuss various healthcare issues with patients, including lab results, medication refill needs, and advice on how to manage minor illnesses at home. Labor and delivery nurses often receive phone calls from expectant mothers about possible labor symptoms and fetal well-being. Similarly, ED nurses field calls about illnesses and injuries.
