What is Telehealth?

Telehealth is the use of digital information and communication technologies, like computers, tablets and smartphones, to access and manage your health care away from your healthcare provider’s office. These may be technologies you use from home or that your provider uses to improve or support health care services. Telephone visits are also considered Telehealth.
