Is telehealth the answer for rural health patients?

Posted by Christina Horne on Nov 13, 2019 4:00:00 PM

Below is an article from NPR regarding instances where Teleheath has become a more popular form of healthcare access for rural health patients. The article gives patient examples of their use of Teleheath, and how if it weren’t for the opportunity to utilize Teleheath they would not have been able to receive care at all. This interesting article sheds light into a potential answer for rural health patients who need healthcare access. With many rural health clinics and hospitals closing, there are few places left for patients to go. In some instances, towns so small and isolated may not have a clinic at all. With Telehealth, those small-town individuals may have an opportunity to seek the care they need from a wide range of specialist and medical professionals from all over the country. Check out the article to learn more about how impactful Teleheath has been on these individuals and their communities.
