Telehealth Specialty Clinic Program

Specialty Clinic

Service Description

Memorial Hospital invites you to participate in our Telehealth Specialty Clinic program. The program will allow your doctor to conduct a virtual visit using a telehealth device. Through this device, your doctor will be able to interact with the patient, seeing and hearing the patients from a remote location using high quality audio/visual equipment. During your virtual visit your doctor will also have access to exam devices and peripherals, such as a digital stethoscope, that allow them to perform remote evaluation with the assistance of clinic staff. Paying for your telehealth appointment varies depending on your insurance status and insurance coverage. Check with your insurance company to find out whether you are covered for a virtual visit. Patient FAQ’s What Is Telehealth? Telehealth is receiving a medical visit through videoconferencing or sometimes just a phone call with the healthcare provider in a different location from the patient. What Does Telehealth Mean? Telehealth — sometimes called telemedicine — lets your health care provider care for you without an in-person visit. Where Do I Go for My Telehealth Visit? Memorial Hospital Specialty Clinic Where Will My Doctor Be Located? Your doctor will be located at their remote location yet still able to interact with you using the help of the nurse or medical assistant. Why Should I Use Telehealth? Telehealth is another option for receiving care from a provider. The benefit of telehealth is increased access to a clinic visit on a day when the provider cannot be physically on site at your location. Is Telehealth Safe? Telehealth is a safe and an effective way to extend the delivery of health care. It may not be appropriate for ALL clinical situations. Your provider can help you determine if telehealth is appropriate for you. Just like an in-person visit, the same quality of care can be achieved using a telehealth visit appropriately. Is My Information Safe? Yes. Telehealth is a safe and secure way of connecting with your health care provider online. Just like in-person care, your telehealth appointments, messages, and information are protected by privacy rules. The telehealth equipment complies with the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), a US law that protects patient information. How Do I Schedule a Follow-Up Virtual Visit?
