What is telemedicine/telehealth?
Telemedicine refers to providing clinical care to patients using various forms of communications technology. Videochatting platforms are the most frequently used technology. Telehealth encompasses telemedicine visits as well as self-monitoring (with various apps, logs or journals) and patient education.
Does a patient have to meet with a provider in-person before a visit can be conducted via telemedicine?
This is determined on a state-by-state basis. The current COVID-19 pandemic has changed some of these rules. Please call the office if you have any questions.
Is telemedicine private and secure? Will my appointment be recorded?
Yes, the platform for the visits is encrypted and secure. Tidewater Telehealth & Wellness, LLC uses a platform from SimplePractice, which is HIPAA compliant. Apps like Facetime, GoogleMeet, or Skype are not secure enough for telemedicine visits.
Does a patient need to provide consent prior to receiving care via telehealth?
Yes. State law requires the health care provider initiating the use of telehealth to inform the beneficiary, obtain consent, and maintain appropriate documentation. The consent form is a required document in the SimplePractice profile.
