What is Telemedicine?
It’s the delivery of health care and the exchange of health care information across distances using telecommunication technology. Simply — it’s a way for you to see a specialist even though you are in one place and they are in another.
In order to keep those in our community safe while still providing quality care, Abbeville General is now offering Telehealth through its three Rural Health Clinics by means of Video Visits!
Anyone who is need of medical care can now speak with one of our healthcare providers in the comfort of their own home, using their smartphone, a tablet, or a computer with camera and audio capability. Patients will speak to one of our team members and will then given instructions on how to enroll in the Abbeville General Patient Portal (through our online HealtheLife Portal or the HealtheLife app) to begin the Video Visit process. Once enrolled, an appointment time will be scheduled. The patient can then connect with the clinic through the Patient Portal at their designated time, the provider then enters and the Video Visit will take place.
This convenient way of visiting with a healthcare professional is safe, efficient, and convenient and is available to everyone. Abbeville General continues to provide Access to Quality Care Close to Home and now from within homes!
To schedule a Video Visit, please call the clinic that you would like to “visit!”
