What do the terms “asynchronous telehealth,” “teleneurology,” “telepharmacy” and “virtual hospital” have in common? They all represent concepts in the field of telehealth.

In order to update their respective terminology data banks in this field, the Translation Bureau and the World Intellectual Property Organization joined forces to prepare records in English, French, Spanish and Portuguese that include many terms validated by Canadian subject-field experts. These records can be identified by the subject field name “Collaboration with WIPO” in TERMIUM Plus® and are now available for consultation.
