ROSEBURG, Ore. – Due to the coronavirus pandemic, telehealth has seen a rise in importance.

The Community Cancer Center started offering telehealth appointments in the middle of April.

They knew they had to find a way to keep patients safe and limit their exposure to others. It took them about three weeks to set it all up.

One of the biggest challenges was helping older patients learn how to use the new technology. Tammy Turner with the center said they’ve embraced learning something new.

When they set up their system, they did it so they can still use it when the pandemic is over, so it’s more convenient for patients who don’t have to come in.

KEZI 9 Checks In is a monthly reminder for women to do a self-breast exam to check for lumps or changes. You can sign up here.
