Combating the Coronavirus with Telemedicine

What is Telemedicine?

  • Telemedicine is the distribution of health-related services and information via electronic information and telecommunication technologies. It allows long-distance patient and clinician contact, care, advice, reminders, education, intervention, monitoring, and remote admissions.
  • Telemedicine provides a value-added benefit that reduces healthcare costs and gives members 24/7/365 access to U.S. board-certified physicians through phone and video consultations, as opposed to more expensive and less productive settings like an urgent care center or emergency department (ED). Telemedicine is not designed to replace the primary care physician (PCP). It simply allows members to resolve their non-emergency medical issues at a fraction of the time and cost when their PCP is unavailable.
