Telemedicine is the use of telecommunication to support healthcare from one side to another via electronic communication. Barriers - reimbursement, EHR integration, multidiscipline physiology, privacy and security, consumer trust and acceptance. Future trends - greater adoption of telemedicine from 2017 and beyond, medical tourism, licensing and legal issues (telemedicine cannot substitute face-to-face consultation), to save money and time of the patient. Telemedicine is a part of new digital age in transforming the diabetes world by precision medicine treatment. It is well-suited for treating diabetes which is both clinically and economically useful for patients with diabetes and other comorbid conditions. It will play a greater role in future.
