Objective: Examine the trends and evolution of telemedicine research based on a bibliometric approach.

Materials and Method: A bibliometric study was developed taking into account the SCOPUS database. For the analysis of results, a search equation was previously developed and quantity, quality and structure indicators were analyzed.

Results: There has been a significant increase in telemedicine research in recent years. The institutions with the highest production are Medical Center and University of Washington, and the main countries where production is concentrated in the United States, the United Kingdom and Australia.

Conclusions: The academic production is concentrated in high income countries, dividing itself into several sub-areas such as medicine, psychology and engineering.
