Telemedicine is the application of audiovisual technology such as photo-imaging, digital recording, video and the world-wide-web to provide medical consultation to patients.

Why does River Clinic provide telemedicine?

Many people would like to become patients of the River Clinic but are unable to travel to our clinic due to distance, lack of a method of transportation, unusual work hours or are physically immobilized due to illness or injury.  Some have small children or elderly person to look after, and leaving the house is just not an option.  For most of our telemedicine patients, it is just a matter of convenience to have medical service provided to them in the comfort of their home without the hassle of travelling.
