Telehealth – A Discussion on Benefits to Both Physicians and Patients


Telehealth encompasses a broad variety of technologies and tactics to deliver virtual medical, health, and education services in order to enhance care delivery. Telehealth initiatives allow physicians to use video conferencing, image-sharing technology, electronic medical records and other tools to remotely help monitor, examine and diagnose patients and recommend treatment. Patients can have secure, confidential consultation with a physician by using their phone, smartphone or a computer with a webcam and internet connection.

Learning Outcomes:

  • Attendees will learn how the Western Connecticut Medical Group (WCMG) is using Telehealth to conveniently extend patient care access beyond regular office hours.
