What is Telehealth? Telehealth is receiving healthcare using audio and/or video technology. When using telehealth, you will be able to talk to your provider and the provider will be talking to you in real time. With video technology, you will also be able to see your provider and they can see you just like a regular clinic visit.
If you would like a telehealth visit you will need the following:
- Device such as a smart phone (Android or Iphone), computer, laptop, or a tablet (Kindle Fire, Ipad, ect.) that has a microphone and speakers,
- An email address,
- A telephone number,
- A list of your current medications,
- A list of any questions or concerns,
Don’t have a device that is compatible with video chatting?
There are Telehealth Community Sites that are happy to help!
Big Lagoon (Two Feathers), Blue Lake Rancheria, Wiyot Tribe, and Trinidad Rancheria.
Just go to the front desk and they will walk you through the process!
Not all health concerns can be addressed using telehealth. When you schedule your appointment the scheduler will know what concerns can be addressed using telehealth and will advise you of your options.
When you call, ask to make a “Telehealth Visit”. If you have any questions or problems, call and ask for the “Telehealth Coordinator.”
