To provide more accessible healthcare services, we now offer medical consultations through video, audio, or electronic information transmission, collectively referred to as "telehealth." Telehealth allows healthcare providers to evaluate, diagnose, manage, and treat various health issues from a remote location. It is crucial that you understand and provide informed consent for the use of telehealth in your care.
DISCLAIMER: Telehealth is not suitable for medical or mental/behavioral health emergencies. In case of a medical emergency, dial 911. For a mental/behavioral health emergency, you can: (1) call 911; (2) go to the nearest emergency room; or (3) contact your local crisis center.
Telehealth: Telehealth involves using electronic communications to enable healthcare providers, including physicians, psychiatrists, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, licensed professional counselors, and social workers, to evaluate, diagnose, manage, and treat various health issues, including mental/behavioral health. Information may include patient medical records, medical images, live video and/or audio, and data from medical devices.
