What is Telehealth?
Patients in rural locations had to travel, sometimes hundreds of miles, when specialists were involved in their care. Now, many Central Care patients have access to their specialists thanks to technological advancements in our telehealth program. Central Care often times can bring the specialist to the patient. For those patients who travel, they sometimes can limit the amount of trips needed.
Telehealth offers improved
timeliness of care. Patients and
referring physicians can receive
treatment options within minutes,
while still providing superior care.
Reducing travel time and stress is a
huge impact for the patient, their
family, and community.
Telehealth gives patients access to providers without the need to travel long distances.
Telehealth can increase health
management with reduced travel
times and access to health
professionals. This creates more time to manage medication, chronic illnesses, and your lifestyle.
Access to Specialists
Telehealth allows access for
patients and referring physicians to expand beyond their communities. This gives rural areas better access to specialists regardless of location.

“Having the opportunity to use the telehealth services enabled me to talk and have visual contact with my doctor without having to drive 100 miles for a 10 minute visit providing I had no major concerns to discuss with him. He was very professional and open, and it was easy to converse with him via the telehealth process.”
