What is telehealth?
Telehealth is a term that covers all of the ways you and your doctor or other health care providers can use technology to communicate without being in the same room. It's also often referred to as telemedicine and virtual health.
It can include phone calls, video chats, emails or communication through a patient.
During the COVID-19 pandemic, access to telehealth has temporarily expanded

Ways to get care
