Telehealth

Telehealth

Telehealth is delivered for primary care, psychiatry, chronic disease monitoring and management, dentistry and home health care.

Many patients have barriers that impact their ability to be seen in the office for appointments such as lack of transportation, childcare issues, physical limitations or mental health issues preventing them from leaving their homes.

Telehealth offers an opportunity for Community Health’s Behavioral Health providers to have sessions with patients from the safety of their homes. “The best behavioral health treatment outcomes are when patients have consistent and consecutive sessions with their providers,” said Community Health’s Behavioral Health Leader, Christopher Chadwick. “Telehealth is a very effective tool in making those sessions happen,” Chadwick said.

Community Health’s Patient Portal is an extension of our digital care network, providing secure online access to your records, prescriptions and a connection to communicate with your provider. Signup for the Patient Portal here.

The State of Vermont supports telehealth and allows Vermont patients to receive virtual care from home. Read more about the state’s telehealth policy here.
