Benefits of Telehealth?

  • Improved access – Offers the ability to deliver care to more patients, while also giving our distinguished physicians the ability to reach patients who cannot visit our offices because of distance, limited mobility or other reasons.
  • Improved quality – Compares favorably with traditional, in-person visits when it comes to outcomes and patient satisfaction, according to several studies. In some cases, health care services through telehealth technology are reportedly better.
  • Cost effectiveness – Decreases health care costs and increases efficiency through better management of chronic diseases, shared staffing, reduced travel times and fewer or shorter hospital stays.
  • Convenience – Gives consumers more flexibility when it comes to scheduling appointments and the providers they want to schedule with. Patients can see and talk to their health care provider face-to-face using a computer, tablet or smart phone. The service offers an ideal option for follow-up appointments or when patients have minor health concerns.
