To provide expanded care and treatment options for its primary care and behavioral health patients, Indian Stream Health Center (ISHC) offers a secure telemedicine platform.
We are excited to offer this opportunity to our patients. For many aspects of their care, our patients can now consult with one of our providers and not have to leave their homes.
Once viewed as a helpful tool, telemedicine has moved to the forefront as on option for many, especially during the pandemic. Whether you want to stay home due to COVID-19 or not wanting to travel in winter, there are many benefits for our patients who wish to use the technology. It is almost like a house call. Your provider is visiting you via video.
Indian Stream patients could also maintain practice relationships when traveling. For instance, if someone resides in Florida in the winter months, they would still be able to connect with their ISHC provider.
Common examples of telehealth visits include discussing symptoms such as a fever or cold, follow-up after a PCP visit, behavioral health counseling, assessing minor injuries such as cuts or scrapes, chronic care management, medication review and Medicare Annual Wellness Visits.
Indian Stream is utilizing Streams Video Connect, a well-regarded platform for telehealth. Visits are covered by most insurance companies and all patients need to participate is a reliable internet connection and computer, tablet, or cell phone with camera access. Patients wishing to enroll in the telehealth option would just need to notify ISHC. Once enrolled they would get an emailed link with their own unique password to participate in a visit.
For many, telehealth is not only a great option, but a timesaver. It is a smart solution, which may help a person avoid an unnecessary trip to the doctor’s office.
