Is my doctor too busy to see me?
In order to enhance and improve our services, we have added telehealth services to your stay. This will allow your doctor to see more patients every day and decrease the time you must wait for an appointment.
There aren’t many patients in the hospital. Why can’t my doctor come see me?
The hospital census varies day to day. The telehospitalists are dedicated to hospital medicine and are flexible with their schedules allowing them to make rounds throughout the day and night.
What is the cost for this service, and is it covered by my insurance?
There is no additional cost to you for the telehealth service. The hospital will bill your insurance just as it has done in the past.
Is there a cost savings for the hospital?
No. Although there is no cost savings to the hospital, this program adds to the quality of care offered to the communities it serves.
