Chaparral Medical Group is supporting the expansion of Telehealth services throughout the service areas, to improve access to critically needed specialty care and to aid in rapid diagnosis and treatment. Telehealth eliminates one of the longstanding barriers to quality care – geographic distance to health care resources. With Telehealth’s information and communication technologies, the treatment and prevention of disease or injury can occur long-distance, erasing geography as a critical factor impeding care.
