T.J. Regional Health offering Telehealth option
GLASGOW, Ky.- T.J. Regional Health clinics are now offering visits via Telehealth, an interactive audio/video system that allows patients to access quality healthcare from the comfort of their own home.
According to a news release from the healthcare provider, 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.
The visits are conducted on a smartphone, tablet, or computer with almost no wait time, and they are covered by most insurance plans.
T.J. Telehealth visits are conducted securely to ensure strict patient privacy and confidentiality.
As part of the visit, the doctor, nurse practitioner or physician’s 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 emergent or necessary.
T.J. Regional Health staff will be reaching out to patients who already have scheduled
appointments to see if a Telehealth visit is appropriate.
Patients who need to schedule a non-emergent appointment are asked to call their provider’s
office to schedule a T.J. Telehealth visit.
