Telehealth – This allows for the provision of care without an in-person office visit. Telehealth is done primarily online with internet access on your computer, tablet, or smartphone.
Goals of Telehealth – Though in-person office visits may be necessary in certain cases, there are many benefits of telehealth care.
- Limited physical contact reduces everyone’s exposure to COVID-19
- Virtual visits ensure you get health care wherever you are located – at home, at work, or even in your car
- Virtual visits cut down on travel, time off from work, and the need for childcare
- Virtual health care tools can shorten the wait for an appointment
