Patients & Families

There are a lot of reasons telehealth programs and services are becoming more common in the delivery of healthcare. Some of them are life saving, like an ER doctor connecting to an MUSC stroke specialist for a telestroke consultation on a patient showing signs of having a stroke. There are also countless ways telehealth is connecting doctors to specialists to help treat critically ill patients in smaller community hospitals.

Telehealth is also improving access in healthcare and filling some of the gaps in provider availability. Children is rural communities that do not have pediatricians in their area can receive the same high quality level of care right in their school nurse’s office with the use of telehealth.

And for the working parent who’s suffering from a recurring condition such as a sinus infection, telehealth brings care right to the palm of their hands with e-Visits and video visits.

Telehealth is transforming the way healthcare is delivered and we are glad to have you a part of this transformation.
