SOMC Implements Video Visits for Patients

The use of telemedicine has been expanding rapidly over the past few years. The current COVID-19 pandemic has increased its implementation for the health and safety of patients and staff. SOMC is now utilizing this option to create a safe visit for patients and providers.

What is the purpose of telemedicine?

Telemedicine’s intended use is for non-urgent care including cold symptoms, nausea, sinus issues, etc. and follow-up appointments. Telemedicine is not a replacement for emergency medical care.

Who can use it?

Most SOMC providers are utilizing this option to stay connected with their patients. Please call your provider’s office to see if this is the best way to meet your needs.
