What is Telehealth?

"Telehealth" involves exchanging medical information through electronic technologies (such as smart phones, tablets, computers, and similar electronic devices) to receive care when you and the doctor are not able to be in the same place at the same time. This allows you to receive medical consultation from your doctor at the comfort and safety of your own home.
