Aims and Scope
Telehealth and Medicine Today (TMT) is a leading international peer review journal where multidisciplinary thought leaders, practitioners, and stakeholders converge to address strategic, medical, technical, economic, legal, regulatory and societal aspects of this growing health technology sector. The journal assists building knowledge and consensus to deploy and scale delivery services to achieve sustainable outcomes for affordable, accessible, and quality care for health consumers around the globe, implementing pragmatic approaches to issues such as interoperability, quality and safety of evolving technologies, business processes, and economic systems driving remote care in a value based system. A world-class review board endeavors to offer rapid peer-review (14 days per review round), and includes constructive commentary to strengthen work. TMT is published quarterly. The journal registers original research article provenance on the blockchain for authors to have a permanent and immutable public record of their work to share with the scientific research community at TMT+ARTiFACTS RESEARCH PORTAL.
