Telehealth at St. John's
Video conference with specialists in Jackson, WY
Telehealth is the modern way for physicians and patients to communicate
through video conferencing consultations. Telehealth is a particularly
valuable resource for those living in rural areas. This is particularly
true in Wyoming. Telehealth allows access to our specialty care providers
without having to physically travel long distances for a visit. Patients
will visit their local doctor’s office to conduct the call with
a St. John’s provider. However, an initial visit with your provider
in Jackson, WY might be required to begin Telehealth conferencing.
