Due to the COVID-19 virus pandemic and our goals of reducing your time spent in clinic and the level of exposure with other people and our staff, Rocky Mountain Cancer Centers (RMCC) is encouraging our healthcare practitioners to utilize telemedicine when appropriate to replace in-person healthcare visits. Your cancer care provider will determine whether it is appropriate for you to be seen via telemedicine or whether an in-person visit is necessary.
If you are asked to use telemedicine, this may consist of either a Zoom video/audio conference from your home, FaceTime or a telephone call to your personal phone.
If you do not have the ability to visit with your cancer care provider via Zoom telemedicine (see requirements below), then please let us know and we can still visit with you in our clinic, but our providers may choose to perform the majority of the in-depth consultation/visit with you using Zoom in one of our clinic rooms but meet with you briefly for the physical examination. You always have the ability to see your provider in person at your request for more urgent or emergent issues regarding your cancer diagnosis or cancer treatments.
We really appreciate your flexibility, understanding, and acceptance of telemedicine during this critical time of social distancing due to the viral pandemic. We realize this is a significant change in how we all are used to meeting and interacting, but we are committed to reducing our levels of interaction during this time and believe that the use of telemedicine will significantly help during the pandemic.
Telehealth is connecting with a doctor through a live-video call. Using telehealth, your Rocky Mountain Cancer Centers (RMCC) doctor or APP can assess you, give you a treatment plan that fits your needs, and discuss your ongoing management and care.
