We Need Your Help! Telehealth Survey Responses Needed
South Carolina ETV and the South Carolina Telehealth Alliance are working together to assess, explore, and share the available telehealth resources in South Carolina. Every day, doctors, patients, and researchers are using telehealth to provide care throughout the state. Looking to meet the needs of the patients where they are, more doctors are realizing the need to look at healthcare in a 21st century way. Telehealth is where technology and healthcare intersect. The goal is to improve a patient’s health by delivering real-time care, by medically trained physicians, from a distance.
South Carolina ETV and the South Carolina Telehealth Alliance are embarking on a 12-month public outreach and communication campaign. Throughout these months, we will explore the experiences of patients and providers in South Carolina. To assist in content creation, we are asking South Carolina residents to respond to a brief telehealth survey. We hope to again release this survey at the end of the 12-month period, to assess the knowledge gained from the series.
