How Does Telehealth Work? 

Telehealth information is used by the ICU staff and shared with family to respond to changes in a patient’s condition quickly and effectively, and is noted in the patient’s chart.

Patient consent is required. When a patient is admitted the consent for Telehealth treatment was signed during the registration process. However, all ICU Telehealth patients will be asked by their nurse to consent verbally at the time of notification to utilize Telehealth Services.

  • There is no cost to the patient.
  • All patient privacy laws apply.
  • The patient’s family can be present during the Telehealth session.
  • No images or audio of the session will be recorded.
  • Patients can stop their Telehealth sessions at any time.
