Telehealth allows us to provide remote pediatric care using secure technology.
Telehealth is a method of providing health care services remotely using technology. Our program allows physicians in one location to care for patients in a different location through live video chat. A secure and convenient online app allows patients to communicate with physicians through a computer, tablet or smart phone.
For more information on getting ready for a telehealth visit and what technology you'll need to start your appointment, visit UF Health's telehealth resource section.
Telehealth expands access to quality patient care in a way that makes it easier for children and families. Telehealth is often more efficient than in-person appointments because it:
- Reduces travel time for patients and physicians.
- Eliminates lodging expenses for patients.
- Improves access for patients.
- Minimizes missed work and school time.
