Cloud County Health Center Rolls Out Telehealth Services During the Coronavirus Crisis

Cloud County Health Center in Concordia is now providing telehealth services to their patients, allowing people to practice social distancing while reducing the spread of diseases and protecting health workers during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Millions of Americans are seeking care by connecting with a doctor electronically.  Dr. Dorothy Breault with the Family Care Center in Concordia says telehealth provides patients with health care services from the comfort of their own home.

Not all visits are suitable for telehealth, but Dr. Breault tells KNCK News telehealth is currently being used to treat conditions across many different specialties.

As long as your diagnosis doesn't require further in-person examination, your medical provider can simply electronically prescribe your medication and send it directly to the nearest pharmacy of your choice.
