Telehealth is becoming vital to innovating health care. For community hospitals and facilities like Lenox Health Greenwich Village with limited in-patient resources, telehealth has given patients access to specialists in a variety of fields, round-the-clock. Telepsych has also become a very important tool for patients and providers for quick evaluation and care, especially in freestanding emergency departments.
