T.J. Regional Health clinics now offer virtual visits via T.J. Telehealth, an interactive audio-video system that allows patients to access quality healthcare from the comfort of their own home. Patients who need refills, follow-up appointments or new consultations with a specialist can call the T.J. Health Pavilion or any T.J. clinic to schedule a virtual visit. These visits are conducted on a smartphone, tablet, or computer with almost no wait time, and most insurance plans cover them.
Because HIPAA compliance is a top priority, T.J. Telehealth visits are conducted securely to ensure patient privacy and confidentiality.
As part of the visit, the doctor, nurse practitioner or physician assistant has the ability to order testing such as lab work, x-rays and other tests if they are urgently needed. Patients can also schedule an in-person visit with their provider if it is deemed an emergency or otherwise necessary.
T.J. Regional Health staff will reach out to patients who already have scheduled appointments to see if a Telehealth visit is appropriate.
Patients who would like to schedule a non-urgent appointment are asked to call their provider's office to schedule a T.J. Telehealth visit.
The Telehealth Consultations Clinic at T.J. Samson Community Hospital is an interactive audio/video system that allows patients to access higher levels of specialty care without leaving Glasgow. Patients can see and talk to specialty physicians remotely via the videoconference unit, which provides face-to-face interaction.
This information is transmitted in real time via a secure line to ensure privacy and confidentiality. Here are just a few examples of Telehealth Consultations:
- Patients interact with a physician via Telehealth to discuss the Stages of Alzheimer's disease and related memory disorders.
- Patients interact with a physician via Telehealth to discuss cognitive behavioral therapy for insomnia.
- We partner with Tristar Medical Institutions for neurological consultations for our stroke patients.
