Our Telemedicine services allow patients easy access to Escalera healthcare. Our providers connect with patients in real time video or telephone call from any internet accessible location.
Our Telehealth Services
We offer primary care sessions via telemedicine. All Escalera Health providers are available for telehealth appointments where patients can discuss symptoms, and medical issues, receive a diagnosis, learn about treatment options, receive refills/new prescriptions, and more.
Our integrated care team will email a link to a secure meeting room with the provider. The only equipment needed is a smartphone or computer with audio/video access.
Benefits of Telehealth
Virtual appointments are conducted through a HIPAA compliant and secured platform allowing patients to see providers from the comfort of their desired location.
Patients can access a telehealth encounter with any computer or mobile device that has a modern web browser and integrated camera. This helps patients living in a remote area or with a busy schedule that doesn’t allow time to visit a physician. Telemedicine can help improve a person’s overall health and well-being.
Per the CDC guidelines, “Telehealth services can facilitate public health mitigation strategies during [the Covid-19] pandemic by increasing social distancing, [and they] reduce the strain on healthcare systems by minimizing the surge of patient demand on facilities and reduce the use of PPE by healthcare providers.”
