Telemedicine is the use of technology that enables remote health care. It allows doctors to treat patients by using a computer or smartphone.
Telemedicine is convenient and cost-effective. It is designed to handle non-emergency medical conditions and behavioral health issues and can often substitute for a doctor’s office, urgent care center or emergency room visit. Telemedicine is not intended to replace your primary care doctor or to be used in life-threatening emergencies.
