Expanding Telehealth Benefits Patients and Family Caregivers

It's the 21st century, and technology allows doctors and other service providers to connect with patients right in their home through numerous virtual pathways from phones to computers and other electronic devices. Not every situation requires an in-person visit to you doctor, and more easily connecting patients with providers can offer big benefits to patients and their family caregivers.

In order to take full advantage of the potential benefits telehealth can offer, some of our laws need to be updated. Legislators are discussing some potential updates to expand telehealth right now as part of the budget due April 1st. Please take a moment to send a message to your lawmakers encouraging them to expand telehealth here in New york.
