Community Telehealth Access Sites
If you would like to have a telehealth visit with your doctor or therapy provider and have trouble accessing the internet from your home, you can go to one of these locations in your county to use their internet connection.
Here are some helpful things to remember:
- It’s a good idea to bring your doctor’s office phone number with you to your tele-health access site visit, in case you have trouble connecting to their platform and need to call them for guidance.
- Take notice of sites asking you to call ahead to reserve a device. You will need to make sure there is one available. Otherwise, you should try to bring your own.
- Your private information is safe. Telehealth platforms must be encrypted with security measures to keep your personal information secure . It is your provider’s responsibility to ensure the telehealth platform they use to communicate with you is HIPAA compliant. Still, please be sure to log out and close out of any public devices you use as part of this shared resource.
- Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, we should always wear a face mask in public. Please call a location before entering the building and follow the building’s hygiene protocols.
- If you are feeling sick or if you think you may have been exposed to COVID-19, please keep your community members safe by staying home or by utilizing a location with Wi-Fi access from the parking lot inside your vehicle.
