Telehealth is playing an important role for the management of chronic diseases especially during the COVID-19 pandemic. Access to Medicare telehealth services has been widely expanded and now beneficiaries can get a wider range of services from their doctors and other clinicians without traveling to a health care facility.
There are three primary forms of telehealth, including video, telephone calls, and instant messaging, including email, health system messaging services, and mobile apps to track patient recorded metrics. The nurse practitioner at On Call Wound Care is available to conduct all forms of telehealth and communicate with our patients and skilled nursing facilities’ clinical staff.
Also, an online patient portal is available 24 hours a day seven days a week for patients to review their clinical progress
