What is Telemedicine?

Telemedicine is the practice of using video conference and telecommunications technology, such as your smartphone or tablet, for a visit with your doctor.

How does Telemedicine work?

What will I need for this visit?

To ensure that you connect with your doctor you will need the following:

  • a working smartphone or tablet with a working video camera and microphone
  • high-speed internet connection (most cellular networks now qualify as well as home-based internet access)

On the day of your appointment, please make sure your device is sufficiently charged or plugged in; you can log in to your visit up to 10 minutes prior to the start time.
