Now Offering Telemedicine Services at Trauma Healing Centers
What is Telemedicine?
Telemedicine uses technology to provide patients with access to health care providers from the comfort of their own homes. Telemedicine appointments provide patients with access to the same services as regular face-to-face appointments with physicians; however, as opposed to a face-to-face meeting, the physician or healthcare professional and the patient interact through videoconferencing on the Internet.
What are the Benefits?
There a variety of benefits associated with telemedicine services. Telemedicine provides patients with convenient and accessible care from dedicated physicians that the patients may not otherwise be able to receive. Telemedicine services help to treat patients who are unable to leave their residence due to diagnoses, transportation, or distance from a local clinic or healthcare provider. Each appointment is private and confidential, and the physician that patient’s speak with is on a safe and secure network. Finally, the telemedicine process is relatively simple. Each patient receives proper instructions, which allow him or her to quickly and easily set up his or her appointment.
How does our Telemedicine Process Work?
All telemedicine patients must have a referral from a physician. You can learn more about our referral process here. If you are a veteran with a pensionable condition, you do not require a referral; however, filling out the referral form allows us to understand more about your medical history.
