What is Telemedicine?

Telemedicine allows our AOC professionals to evaluate, diagnose and treat patients at a distance using telecommunications technology (phone calls or video conferencing technology). The approach has been through a striking evolution in the last decade and it is becoming an increasingly important part of the American healthcare infrastructure.

During this time using our AOC patients can see several benefits to telemedicine as an alternative to in-person visits:

  • Less time away from work
  • No travel expenses or time
  • Less interference with child or eldercare responsibilities
  • Privacy
  • No exposure to other potentially contagious patients
