If you are not a current Judson Center Family Health patient, or have a primary care doctor that doesn’t offer TeleHealth, you can still access our services – the government or your insurance carrier in most case is picking up the cost due to the urgency of the need to “flatten the curve” of the virus.

What is Telehealth?
“We’ll use the definition from the Center for Connected Health Policy (CCHP):
Telehealth is a collection of means or methods for enhancing health care, public health and health education delivery and support using telecommunications technologies. Telehealth encompasses a broad variety of technologies and tactics to deliver virtual medical, health, and education services. Telehealth is not a specific service, but a collection of means to enhance care and education delivery.”
The “telecommunications technologies” mentioned in the CCHP definition typically take one of these forms:
- Live videoconferencing – Two typical applications are:
– Pre-op prep or follow-up between the care team and the patient and family
– A physician consult with a far-away specialist
- Store-and-Forward – When a patient transmits medical data to a physician or practitioner for later review. Store-and-Forward does not require real-time communication between the sender and the receiver of the information. It supports diagnosis and treatment. For example, a patient may send her dermatologist a photo of a suspicious mole without a real-time interaction.
- Remote Patient Monitoring – A variety of technologies which enable a care team to monitor a patient’s health remotely. Four common applications are:
– Devices that measure and wirelessly transmit data to a care team; examples are blood pressure and lung function
– Wearable devices that automatically record and transmit data; examples are blood glucose levels, heart rate, physical activity, tremors, and sleep patterns
– Web-based or mobile apps for uploading data to a care team; an example is blood glucose readings
– Home-based remote monitoring devices that detect changes in routine activities; examples are excessive sleep and falls
