NOTE: The material submitted in this chart was supplied by JWGT participating agencies. The figures represent agency estimates on telemedicine funding and are compiled differently from agency to agency. In some instances, it has been difficult to separate out telemedicine from other expenditures. Therefore, the figures do not necessarily always represent telemedicine as defined in this report. For example, some include activities related to informatics, research and distance learning.
