Why Telehealth?

Telehealth is defined by the New York State Department of Health as the use of electronic information and communication technologies to deliver health care to patients at a distance. The Reimagine New York Commission has identified expanding and improving telehealth as essential to build a more accessible, effective, and equitable healthcare system. Telehealth is not considered a "new" specialty or service, but another mechanism or tool to deliver standard care. As telehealth becomes a permanent part of practice, basic provider training is important to ensure quality of service.
