Telehealth, also called Telemedicine is the distribution of health-related services and information via electronic information and telecommunication technologies. It allows long-distance client and clinician contact, care, advice, reminders, education, intervention, monitoring, and remote admissions.
At Continuum, we believe that people in early recovery need plenty of support after completing treatment. Using Telehealth allows clients to receive ongoing therapy from anywhere using their computer, tablet or smartphone to remotely connect with a clinician.
Telehealth allows clients to receive counseling via a HIPAA-compliant videoconferencing system. Clients are matched with clinicians and are set up with their own secure account for telehealth. Sessions typically last approximately 60 minutes, like a traditional one-on-one therapy session in an office. Privacy is secured through a special HIPAA-compliant interface.
