Telemedicine provides important new opportunities to improve health care in the 21st century.  Telemedicine is safe, efficient and convenient for both patients and providers.  It is often the method preferred by patients who demand timely access to their doctors.  And it is a method endorsed by a growing number of doctors who understand its potential. Other industries have taken advantage of information technology to benefit consumers in numerous ways.  It is time that health care does the same.
