What is telehealth?
Telehealth is an easy to use, HIPAA-compliant way to receive quality medical care virtually rather than in person.
The process is simple. After you request a virtual appointment, your provider sends a calendar invite with a link to digital registration forms (more information below).
In addition to receiving high-quality health care without going to the doctor’s office, there’s another benefit: You don’t have to be in the same location as your physician.
If you live a distance from your primary care physician or specialist, you can still get the medical care you need in a comfortable, convenient way through telehealth.
What health care services can I receive through telehealth?
You can receive many of the services normally provided in the office, but you need to check with your provider to learn exactly which services they offer via telehealth.
In the case of a medical emergency, however, you need to seek care at your local urgent care facility or hospital emergency department.
