TELEHEALTH MEDICAL GROUP LAUNCHES NEW CONCEPT IN HEALTHCARE PRACTICE
Patients Can Choose to Consult with a Provider In-Person or Online from Anywhere in the World
ORANGE, Calif.—February 7, 2011—TeleHealth Medical Group announced today that it has launched a new practice concept that allows patients to decide if they would like to visit a Southern California-based medical office or consult with a healthcare professional through video conferencing (known as a ‘Teleconsult’)
. This next generation of patient/physician interaction gives individuals access to a team of forward-thinking doctors, specialists, pharmacists and nurses in the comfort of their homes, while traveling, in the office or in a neighborhood medical practice. The TeleHealth Medical Group offers general medicine with programs for pain, sleep, medication management, memory care, pharmacy services, breathing, balance and weight loss, as well as specialized expertise in hospital discharge orders and follow-up.
“Our goal is to make collaborative and personal clinical care more accessible to patients and be a leader in delivering quality care in the ever-changing healthcare landscape,” said Dr. Bryn Henderson, founder of TeleHealth Medical Group. “By offering a choice for patients to use either the online service or visit the clinics personally, we make healthcare more convenient, cost-effective and compassionate.”
TeleHealth Medical Group’s physical locations are based in the cities of Orange, Upland and Rancho Cucamonga. “Teleconsult”
patients are seen through a video conferencing platform that allows for diagnosis and consultations. The medical team is made up of physicians, nurses and pharmacists who work directly with the patient, caregiver and family member, regardless of distance or location. A nurse visits the patient’s home and sets up a laptop with a webcam and digital medical kit to enable the doctor to view the patient’s vital signs on screen during the consultation. Through the use of a secured, online instant video conferencing service, patients, particularly seniors with limited mobility, are able to receive a comprehensive examination without visiting the doctor’s office. The online appointment is recorded and conducted on a secured link to ensure the quality of administered care. The patient’s loved-ones are also able to be included in a Teleconsult, which has proven a tremendous benefit for family members unable to attend appointments in person.
Overall, Teleconsulting reduces time, in relation to the patient or caregiver needing to prepare for travel to and wait at a doctor and/or specialists’
offices. It also relieves stress associated with arranging trips to the doctor and lowers risks of contacting contagious diseases. Costs can be contained by avoiding unnecessary transports and emergency room visits.
TeleHealth Medical Group offices are located in Orange Calif., within the Old Towne Medical Clinic, In Upland, within the Foothill Medical Clinic and in Rancho Cucamonga at the Palm Plaza Medical Clinic.
