Telehealth overcomes constraints of health reach and interaction due to time, distance as well as difficult terrains. A wide array of problems in telehealth have been described. Except for technical issues, literature on this topic is scant, so this article is based more on personal experience and data collected from surveys. Much can be done to prevent such problems, such as a need for standardization with related clinical studies for devices as well as processes used for telehealth is underlined, besides evaluation of outcomes of projects undertaken.
