Tri-County Health Care now offers video visits
WADENA — To further protect the health and safety of patients, staff and the community during this COVID-19 crisis, Tri-County Health Care now offers Video Visits, according to a news release.
Video Visits is a new way to receive care for a variety of conditions by connecting new or existing patients with a Tri-County Health Care provider from home. This new option reduces the chance of spreading illness, saves on travel time and expenses and increases access to health care while also allowing health care providers to conserve the use of masks, gowns and other essential personal protective equipment.
During these scheduled appointments, Tri-County Health Care providers will evaluate, diagnose and prescribe treatment from remote locations using technology such as a smartphone, tablet or computer. Patients and providers will be able to see, hear and speak to each other throughout the appointment.
“This virtual option offers the convenience of saving people time and gas money while also keeping everyone safe by minimizing exposure for both patients and staff,” said Dr. Julie Meyer, in the news release. “It’s a great option and opportunity to stay connected to patients and be available to answer questions and reassure them during this time of crisis.”
Patients require a smartphone, tablet or a camera-enabled laptop or desktop computer, microphone and access to high speed internet.
