What is telehealth?Telehealth (also known as Telemedicine) is a doctor’s visit that does not require face-to-face interaction. It occurs 100 percent online. You can use your computer, tablet, or smartphone to conduct a telemedicine appointment. This is a great option for people with busy schedules who do not have time to visit their doctor in person. It is also a great option for people in rural areas who do not have the same access to healthcare as people in large cities. Now, patients can meet with a medical professional from the comfort of their own homes.
