Services provided by FVR Medical Group Services, INC.
FVR Medical Group (“FVR”) offers contraceptive services through telehealth technologies. Telehealth is a mode of delivering healthcare services via information and communication technologies to facilitate the diagnosis, consultation, treatment, education, care management, and self-management of health care, while patients and their health care providers are in different sites. Telehealth involves the use of technology to optimize avenues and accessibility for contraception between our health care providers and patients.
While telehealth may improve access to healthcare and lead to more efficient diagnosis, treatment, and care management, there are potential risks associated with telehealth, as there are with any medical treatment or procedure. The potential risks associated with telehealth include, but are not limited to, insufficient transmission of information that does not allow for appropriate decision-making and diagnosis by the health care provider; delays in diagnosis, consultation, and/or communication due to deficiencies.
