Benefits of telehealth
Telehealth can be helpful during the assessment process as a tool for those who cannot physically get to our centers. For more information about our telehealth program and options, see below or fill out the form on our contact page.
What is telehealth?
The Health Resources Services Administration defines telehealth as the use of electronic information and telecommunications technologies to support clinical health care, patient and professional health-related education, public health and health administration. Technologies include videoconferencing, the internet, store-and-forward imaging, streaming media, and terrestrial and wireless communications.
