We’ve done the research and put together resources, information, and tools for you to successfully utilize TELEMEDICINE and continue to focus on your patients’ health and wellbeing.
WHAT IS TELEMEDICINE?
Telemedicine is the exchange of medical information from one location to another using electronic communication for the practice of caring for patients when the provider and patient are not physically present with each other. Telemedicine has multiple applications and can be used for different services, which includes wireless tools, email, two-way video, smartphones, and other methods of telecommunications technology.
HOW CAN MY PATIENTS BENEFIT FROM TELEMEDICINE?
- Connect with patients quickly, efficiently and without travel
- Continuing to serve patients during social distancing
- Check in on elder patients or those with health concerns
- Consult and provide tools for their health (i.e. Chinese herbal remedies, acupressure, CBD, etc.)

Telemedicine services may be provided, for example, through audio, text messaging, or video communication technology, including video conferencing software.
There are many websites and programs that allow for telemedicine communication but vary in features, function and cost. We have researched some of the most popular solutions and would like to share these options.
