Telehealth applications are an emerging technology in a new era of telemedicine within health care systems. Although telehealth technologies, are utilized by various members of the health care team, Nurse Practitioners utilize them for a variety of patients’ issues across healthcare settings. The Indiana University-Purdue University Fort Wayne Computer Science Department developed a wound scanning application, WoundView, for nurse practitioners to utilize in different healthcare settings. Such telehealth mobile applications are used in clinics, home health, rural, and remote settings where a physician may not be readily available. There are challenges with current practice of using telehealth technologies including a dire need for evidence-based research supporting attainable solutions for these barriers. Extensive, ongoing research will allow Nurse Practitioners to anticipate an immense mainstream implementation of telehealth applications in the near future.
