WHY IS TELEHEALTH IMPORTANT?
The US population is increasing, but there is a shortage of healthcare professionals being educated, trained and licensed. This means that we must find ways to use each of these valuable resources in the most efficient way possible.
Add to that the need to care and the need to serve rural areas, that lack specialists and health facilities and you have a situation that calls out for the solutions that telehealth provides.
WHAT IS TELEHEALTH? (PRIVATE ONLINE SESSIONS)
The federal Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) defines telehealth as, “The use of electronic information and telecommunications technologies to support long-distance clinical health care, patient and professional health-related education, public health and health administration.”
HOW DOES TELEHEALTH WORK?
Real-time communication occurs when the patient is at one site and the provider is at another and they use a webcam and a telephone or computer audio to conduct a clinical visit. In some cases the patient is at a healthcare facility with a provider and they connect to a remote specialist for consultation. In other cases, the patient is at home without a provider on site.
BENEFITS OF TELEHEALTH SESSIONS?
You can visit with your counselor in the comfort of your home. No need to fight traffic and come to a doctors office. The patient can log on to the office website ( at a predetermined appointment time) and this will notify the counselor to log on as well and they can see each other face to face over a secure connection and have a therapy session this way.
