Virta Tech Health Association
Due to the cost and convenience of delivering care virtually (Telemedicine), there were over 2,000,000 “Telemed” visits in the United States in 2017. Conducting doctors visits from home, or on the road via computers, cell phones, tablets etc., (virtual access) for many ambulatory conditions, has proven to reduce the stresses, wait times, and costs involved of physically going to the doctor. This has resulted in an unprecedented demand for HIPAA compliant virtual care.
We are thrilled to announce that we have arranged for all myHana annual subscription members to optionally join the Virta Tech Health Association. By doing so, we can access the Telemedicine services of Teladoc, which is one of the worlds leading Telemedicine companies.
