Using Telemedicine to Help Keep Families Healthy
As e-health takes off, rural families said to be among those to benefit the most
Telemedicine is increasingly being used to connect physicians with patients, especially in the more rural areas of our state and region. And this time of year, the service can come in especially handy, as families try to figure out what’s really worth a trip to the doctor, or if the care you’re giving at home will provide the healing loved ones need. Maria Drey, AveraNow Service Line Manager, joined us in the studio to talk about why telemedicine is taking off, how it works, what Avera’s own service costs, and how families are using it to find peace of mind.
