Tele-health & Transportation Services
The Round Valley Indian Health Center (Health Center) provides Tele-health service. This service allows patients to visit with specialist physicians that may be hundreds of miles away. Using video conferencing technology, a "real-time" visit with a physician anywhere in the world is possible. The specialist is supplied with the patient's personal health information, i.e. current labs, vital signs, medical history and can then visit with the patient about their care. The specialist will make recommendations that include new ways to improve your care. For a Tele-health appointment you will first need to see your Health Center primary care physician.
