New TeleHealth Program for you and your family
The Fallon Tribal Health Center is launching a wonderful and exciting new TeleHealth program that will be offered at the Fallon Tribal Health Center starting April 2nd. TeleHealth is emerging as a critical component of outpatient and inpatient medical care. TeleHealth holds the promise to significantly positively impact some of the most challenging problems of our current healthcare system: access to care, cost effective delivery, and distribution of limited providers. TeleHealth can change the current paradigm of care and allow for improved access and improved health outcomes in effective ways. Below are some benefits of the TeleHealth:
-Improved access to specialty care, especially for those with a Medicaid, Medicare or Qualified Health Plan.
-Address provider shortages and access to clinical education programs to keep our providers up to date on the latest in medical research.
-Promotes and improves patient centered care patient-provider communication, patient self-management, patient health literacy and medication management.
The Tribal Health Center Director Joe Herman stated, “We hope that you are as excited about this healthcare initiative as we are and look forward to seeing you here at the Fallon Tribal Health Center.” Specific referral information will be announced by Friday, March 16, 2018, contact the Fallon Tribal Health Center – Medical Suite for more information at (775) 423-3634 @ ext. 275, Elaine Bender, Associate Director of Clinical Services.
