Telehealth

Telehealth is the provision of medical services at a distance via technology. Telehealth has been around for several decades and includes a wide range of methods (e.g., phone, video conferencing, text messaging, mobile apps). Telehealth is used for clinician/client appointments as well as clinician-to-clinician consultations. Telehealth can help break down challenges like transportation and patient stigma fears over going to an HIV care site.
