About the Webinar

Telemedicine is the wave of the future. It makes it possible for your healthcare provider to evaluate, diagnose, and treat you wherever you are using remote technologies, like audio and video. Telehealth includes the aspects of telemedicine, but at the same time, has a broader definition. You might be thinking, especially during this unexpected time of uncertainty, “What does all this mean for me? Will I ever see my healthcare provider in person again? How will he/she examine me? How will I get my blood work or other test done? Do I need special equipment for a telemedicine visit? What about payment and insurance?” These are only a few of the many questions that will be answered by a panel of ACHD specialists on this webinar. You don’t want to miss this.
