Telehealth Consultations

Picture Teleheatlh is interactive video that allows a specialist and a client to communicate through a high definition screen and special camera equipment.

Western Mental Health Center is currently using this technology to offer medication management checks to its clients that live greater distances from the clinic. The procedure would be the same as if the client were coming into the specialist’s office to complete a medication management check.

The client will be able to see, hear, and talk to the consulting health care provider through a high definition screen located in the telehealth room of their local provider. The consulting provider will be able to do the same at their site.
