Telemedicine promotes the provision of medical care using information and communication technologies such as telephone and audio/ video conferencing. Although this method of healthcare delivery improves medical care access, it may not be appropriate in every medical situation. As such, if the consulting medical doctor determines an in-person assessment is necessary, arrangements will be discussed at that time in order to meet the highest standard of care.
