Access to quality health care, from where you are
Staying connected with your provider is important for your health. We offer telehealth at home appointments as one convenient way for you to see your provider. We can connect you with your provider via telephone, laptop or other mobile device from your own home.
What is a telehealth at home appointment?
We have been providing telehealth appointments since 1997. And, as telehealth technology has evolved, so have we.
Telehealth at home appointments allow you to use your smartphone, laptop or other mobile device to see your provider when, where and how you want. Telehealth at home appointments reduce travel and wait times and keep you safe when social distancing is necessary.
How does a telehealth at home appointment work?
During your telehealth at home appointment, you’ll be able to see and speak with your provider as though you were both in the same room. Your visit will take place through an app that will be provided to you in an email you will receive prior to your telehealth at home appointment.
The user-friendly Cisco Webex app will work on nearly any mobile device or laptop that has:
- An internet connection.
- A web camera.
- A microphone.
- Speakers (internal or attached).
- A web browser. (Google Chrome is the preferred web browser.)
