About Telehealth

Californians, regardless of where they live, deserve the best possible access to necessary medical care, but in communities throughout the state, many are unable to get the care they need. Care delivered via telehealth overcomes access and cost barriers by using technology to better harness clinician time and expertise. It connects patients to their providers more quickly, efficiently, and conveniently. Hospitals and health systems continue to invest in technology, training, and patient education to ensure this innovative mode of care is available to expand access to care throughout the state.
