A video visit is the opportunity to see one of our providers via telemedicine on a camera-enabled device from where ever is most convenient for you. A smartphone, tablet, laptop, or work station with a webcam will work.

Prior to the introduction of advanced technologies, health travel was a problem for many patients who were worried about ensuring the quality of treatment and security of their records. Although basic telemedicine has existed over many decades, new progress in technology now enables patients to receive high-quality care without compromising any of their private details.

Much of the improved security in telemedicine can be attributed to the development and use of encryption keys when exchanging information. Only a qualified professional, such a nurse and practitioner, can then view and open the files.

This level of security is necessary to protect the type of information that is being exchanged. Secure digital forensic imaging has been a particularly important advancement in the technological security of telemedicine.

Although most forensic imaging files are usually associated with crimes, the security procedures developed to protect them have spread to other areas of telemedicine, altogether bolstering the level of protection of patient confidentiality.

Telemedicine is an incredibly valuable resource due to the intricate and immediate nature of what it can communicate. Being able to openly discuss a patient's medical records with specialists 5,000 miles away in a video conference, or having a look inside a patient by transmitting images from a remote video camera, or viewing complex diagnostic charts on one's computer or over the video visit service, is all incredibly beneficial to both patients and doctors.

Luckily, these improvements in technology have allowed for a happy medium between rigidly controlled data and accessibility. Through making use of the strength and flexibility of the internet while at the same time enforcing robust protocols to ensure the confidentiality of information shared, telemedicine has created an opportunity for patients to experience the full range of global health care.

The ease of telemedicine connects medical facilitators regardless of their geographic position. Simultaneously, the security protocols enable qualified professionals to provide their patients with uncompromised and informed quality care.

As telemedicine has advanced both in sophistication and popularity, patients benefit from being virtually anywhere in the world while retaining the high quality of care they are used to in their regular doctor's office.
