What is telehealth?
Telehealth is a means of providing health care services via live video conferencing, facilitating two-way audio and video communication between a patient and a provider. Telehealth is also defined as the virtual delivery of care through HIPAA-compliant technology, including a growing variety of virtual care applications and services that use two-way video, email, smartphones, wireless tools, and other forms of telecommunication technology. Conversations and sessions remain secure through the highest levels of encryption across texts, video, audio, and other media.
Why is this a good option for my care?
Telehealth visits make it easier than ever to meet with your healthcare provider even if you can’t make it into the office. It is a perfect fit for busy families, business travelers, college students, people in rural communities, those with physical limitations or illness, and more. Telehealth visits help reduce time away from work as well as travel-related expenses. No matter the weather, you can still meet with your therapist in the comfort and safety of your own home.
