Telehealth Video Visits Deliver Convenient Care
Telehealth video visits through Hattiesburg Clinic’s patient portal, Iris, are an innovative way for patients to receive the care they need in the comfort of their home. With the spread COVID-19, telehealth has emerged as one of the leading methods for routine care and follow-up appointments.
Lila Balch recently took advantage of the latest innovation in health care and raved about her experience. The thing that stood out most to her – the lack of wait time.
“The [Telehealth] wait time was so much easier to bear. Plus, I was in a much more comfortable spot because I was at home,” Balch said. “I really do think that makes it easier.”
Hattiesburg Clinic offers Telehealth video visits so patients can electronically visit with certain providers through their Iris account. Telehealth, also known as telemedicine, is the use of video and voice technology to deliver health care services at a distance. With Hattiesburg Clinic’s live telehealth video service, patients have the ability to schedule time with a provider through a two-way video conference while never leaving their office or home.
Balch had her first at-home doctor’s visit with Wendell R. Helveston, MD, at Hattiesburg Clinic Neurology.
“I appreciate the fact that even though I wasn’t able to come in and see Dr. Helveston during the height of the COVID-19 pandemic, that I still have the opportunity to receive the best medical care I need,” Balch said.
Thank you, Lila, for sharing your telehealth experience.
