What is TeleHealth?  Live Video TeleHealth is a virtual, web-based Internet appointment that is audio-visual communication that will enable you to see your doctor or nurse practitioner via online video-conferencing. These online video-conferencing appointments, also known as a "web-based visit," will enable you to receive ongoing care from your doctor or nurse practitioner when an in-person visit is not required or is not possible.

While Virtual Appointment visits are convenient to the public, they also have drawbacks, such as:

  • Treatment(s) may not be coordinated with your regular doctor;

  • Essential information from your medical history may not be considered;

  • If you have a complex medical history, the computer-driven, decision-making model may not be optimal;

  • Online video-conferencing appointment visits lack an in-person evaluation with your medical provider, which may hamper accurate diagnosis; and

  • Online video-conferencing appointment visits do not easily allow for shared provider-patient decision-making regarding treatments. 

PATIENT REQUIREMENTS for

LIVE  VIDEO  TELEHEALTH VISITS:

  • Diabetic patients

    MUST have a glucometer.

  • Hypertensive patients MUST have a blood pressure monitor.

  • Some medical services WILL REQUIRE face-to-face visits.
