Preparing patients for telehealth
The transition to telehealth is an adjustment for patients as well as health care providers. By preparing your patients for remote medical care, you help ensure their comfort and maintain quality care.
Promoting telehealth helps build awareness about how patients can easily access care and services you provide. It's also an opportunity to remind patients not to put off routine and preventative care appointments.
Help patients better understand what telehealth is, the benefits of virtual health care, and how to schedule a telehealth appointment.
