What is Telehealth?

Telehealth is a form of medical care where you connect with your doctor via your smartphone, computer, or tablet using webcam consultations. Many patients prefer telehealth to monitor their health while talking to a knowledgeable physician, but without having to come to our hospital for a scheduled appointment. This helps you avoid unnecessary exposure to others in the waiting room and makes it so you don’t have to travel outside your home to get the medical care you need.

Not all specialists offer telehealth, but many do. If a physician wants to monitor your health over time, telehealth is often the route they take. Some doctors who frequently connect with their patients via telehealth include behavioral healthcare providers, primary care physicians, and those who can safely assess your health through modern technology.

For details and to make a telehealth appointment with us, please call us at 760-482-5000. We can help you learn how to use telehealth with a doctor or specialist at ECRMC. In case of emergency, dial 9-1-1.
