TELEHEALTH AT CHURCH HEALTH
Church Health now offers appointments with providers through telehealth. These virtual appointments give you a way to meet face to face with your provider in a convenient and safe way – from the comfort of your own home – via a computer or mobile device. In addition, telehealth appointments can save patients a trip to the clinic.
Telehealth appointments do not replace all in-person visits, but they do offer a great way to see your provider, review medications, discuss how you feel and more.

What is Telehealth?
Telehealth is a system to provide patient care and health services by phone or video chat, instead of in a clinic. For many reasons, patients may not always be able to meet a provider in person. Telehealth is a convenient alternative to offer high-quality services and access to providers for patients who have a non-emergency need or are due for a follow up visit with their doctor.
Church Health has begun to use both video and phone to reach patients in areas including medical, physical rehabilitation, behavioral health, nutrition and health coaching.As telehealth grows across Church Health, we will provide health education, preventative maintenance, and life-saving health services.
What are the benefits of Telehealth for the patient?
- No need to spend time driving to and from the clinic, parking, taking public transit, or waiting for your appointment.
- Appointments may be scheduled during a break or after work and from any location you feel offers adequate privacy.
