Grace Cottage is now offering telehealth visits
TOWNSHEND- Grace Cottage Family Health is offering telehealth appointments to provide additional access to primary care health needs in view of social distancing necessary because of the coronavirus pandemic. Telehealth is a virtual (video chat) appointment with a health care provider. Telehealth appointments are available for both established and new patients.
Telehealth may not be right for everyone. Grace Cottage’s scheduling center, with the guidance of our medical team, can help determine whether telehealth is appropriate, and if so, can set up an appointment. Once it is determined that a telehealth appointment is appropriate, a scheduling specialist will schedule an appointment.
Things to know: Participants need a computer or a device with a camera and microphone and to be available at the scheduled appointment time; click the personalized link provided at the time an appointment is scheduled; all data is secure, private, and no information is stored; most telehealth visits are covered by Medicare, Medicaid, and commercial insurance; ZOOM is the video conferencing that is used by Grace Cottage Family Health and Hospital.
