Telemedicine

What is Telemedicine?

Telemedicine services refer to health care services delivered using live interactive videoconferencing technology.

Using telemedicine, a client and a licensed provider physically separated by some distance  communicate through  live interactive video.

With the client’s consent, Northeastern Center may provide medication management and assessments via telemedicine. The appropriateness of telemedicine services shall be determined by the licensed provider responsible for the services being provided.  If it is determined a service cannot be delivered effectively or safely via telemedicine, the service will be scheduled for a face-to-face appointment.

Clinicians providing telemedicine services will be fully credentialed to provide services at the facility where the patient is being seen.
