The Center for Telehealth provides answers for frequently asked questions about telemedicine, telehealth and the various services available.
Telemedicine is the use of medical information exchanged from one site to another via electronic communications to improve a patient’s clinical health status. Telemedicine includes a growing variety of applications and services. (American Telemedicine Association).
Cincinnati Children’s provides eVisits, diagnostic services, provider telehealth, and telemedicine encounters. We currently offer services in many of our nationally ranked specialties.
The Center for Telehealth is continuously growing and expanding our program’s reach. Contact us if you would like more information or are interested in any of our services.
The cost of services varies. Insurance reimbursement also varies depending on your insurance carrier, the service you are receiving, and the state you live.
The equipment needed for telehealth depends on the service that you are seeking.
eVisits: If you are eligible to request an eVisit, you will be told this by your physician at your appointment. These are ONLY follow-up visits for patients previously seen at Cincinnati Children's. They are done using the MyChart patient portal.
Telemedicine Encounter: These video clinics are not offered directly to patients. They are provided at various spoke locations (usually other health care facilities) and patients are referred by local physicians.
Telemedicine Clinic: If you are interested in being a spoke site for one of our consulting services, please contact us to discuss current opportunities for us to work with you to meet the needs of your patient population.
Provider Telehealth: Often, these conferences are through contractual arrangements with sites that have sufficient patient volume to support a multidisciplinary case conference several times annually. Onsite training and education are often included in collaboration with the goal of improving care and changing pediatric outcomes. Additionally, there are some instances where we will leverage provider telehealth for one-off conferences, specifically for transition of care conversations.
