TeleHealth Virtual Visits use a phone or video conferencing platform, much like Skype or FaceTime, to connect providers with patients in different locations for an outpatient appointment.
TeleHealth and TeleMedicine (the practice of medicine using electronic communications) have been used for decades and are a safe way to virtually attend many medical appointments. Telemedicine is subject to the same privacy rules and regulations as in-person health care services. Dartmouth Health’s telemedicine technology is safe, secure, and HIPAA compliant. You can attend your telemedicine virtual visit with many APD and Dartmouth Health physicians or providers using this technology from home on a smartphone, tablet, laptop, or computer (except Chromebooks).
