Why Telehealth?

With the launch of our on-demand telehealth service, InteractiveMD, we thought it would be appropriate to share a little bit about what we offer and how it can benefit you.

Telehealth is a method of delivering health care that utilizes advanced technology to improve the accessibility, efficiency and quality of care received. Though it has existed for some time in the form of phone consultations, new advances in technology, coupled with the needs of an increasingly strained medical community, have spurred an increase in demand for the development and availability of low-cost, high-tech medical consultation.
