What is Telehealth?

As defined by the American Physical Therapy Association, Telehealth is the use of electronic information and telecommunication technologies to remotely provide health care information and services.

Telehealth offers safety, convenience and flexibility.

Safety

During these trying times, just going to the grocery story can be terrifying. Using telehealth, you can visit the clinic without ever leaving your home.

Convenience

No more driving hours to see the provider you feel comfortable with; just open your laptop and check into your appointment.

Flexibility

Telehealth can easily be offered in the evenings, during your lunch break, or even on weekends.

  1. Treatment online has no increased error rate than it would in person.
  2. Treatment outcomes were the same, if not better than in-person care.
  3. Telehealth offers cost benefits of both time and money
