Telemedicine, telehealth, and e-health have the capacity to increase access to quality, timely, and cost-effective specialty health care. These technologies may not only revolutionize the way physicians care for patients but also change the way clinical care is structured with changes in workflow, quality management, and transmission of patient data. Cancer prevention is a rapidly evolving field; however, a major limitation in its efficacy is the limited access that persons have to cancer preventive care. Housed largely in academic centers, cancer preventive services are unreachable to many. Telemedicine, telehealth, and e-health technologies bring unprecedented opportunities to promote cancer prevention strategies directly to the persons in remote or underserved communities, thus enhancing the health care of the population.
