TeleHealth uses a phone or video conferencing platform, much like Skype or FaceTime, to connect providers with patients in different locations for an outpatient appointment. Patients report great satisfaction with receiving care this way.
Telemedicine has been used for decades and is a safe way to attend many medical appointments. Telemedicine is subject to the same privacy rules and regulations as in-person health care services. Dartmouth-Hitchcock Health’s telemedicine technology is safe, secure, and HIPAA compliant.
