Telehealth and Other Info

TELEHEALTH Providers for Remote Patient Visits

For those who have no telehealth capabilities via hospital, health system, etc., here are a couple of options to consider:

  • AZOVA (free to sign up and set up, $50 per provider/mo. subscription or per patient encounter fee options)
  • Doxy.me (free to sign up, $35-$50 per provider monthly subscription, no per patient fee)
  • RelevantMD (offering Free 2-way secure texting service during COVID-19 outbreak - call 801-360-5552 for info.)

NOTE on Telehealth: Effective immediately, physicians may use any audio or video communication technology that is non-public facing to care for patients, and they won’t face penalties if these telehealth technologies do not fully comply with HIPAA regulatory requirements. That’s according to an announcement from the HHS Office of Civil Rights, which has chosen to exercise its HIPAA enforcement discretion due to the COVID-19 public health emergency. Note that this applies to patients being treated for any reason, and is not limited to only those patients being treated for suspected COVID-19.  For more information, including examples of technologies that are considered “non-public facing,” read the HHS OCR announcement in full or explore these other resources:
