Southeast Nebraska Cancer Center has expanded our services to include telehealth which will allow us to continue to provide high quality cancer care through virtual visits.
Telehealth allows patients to meet in the safety of their own home with our Advanced Practice Providers from mobile phones or home computers, when clinically appropriate, without an in-person visit to the clinic.
While some patients will continue to need to come to our locations for treatment, lab work and other essential care, we are taking proper precautions and performing multiple screenings for COVID-19 symptoms of all patients, caregivers and staff. It’s important to note that patients currently in treatment will continue to come to our SNCC locations for therapy that requires observation by clinicians.
The health and safety of our patients and staff is our highest priority. Telehealth is just one way we can continue to provide high quality cancer care while supporting social distancing.
What is telehealth?
Telehealth (also often called telemedicine) offers the ability for healthcare to be provided to patients in real-time with the use of electronic technology. Patients can have an appointment when it isn’t possible for them to be there in person.
Am I able to use telehealth for all of my appointments?
Your SNCC provider will determine the best type of appointment for you based on what type of visit you have and what may be required during that visit. If you are scheduled for an appointment at SNCC and your provider feels that a telehealth visit is appropriate, you will be contacted by a staff member and offered this option.
What kinds of telehealth services does SNCC offer?
At this time, your SNCC provider will determine which appointments are appropriate to be telehealth.
If I choose a video consultation, do I need a special app?
No. SNCC video consultations are conducted through a secure web application that does not require downloading or sign up. You will just need a device that has a camera and a microphone.
Is the video web application secure?
Yes. All data is encrypted and none of your information is stored. The web application also adheres to HIPAA, PIPEDA, and GDPR data privacy requirements.
How will I know if I should see my provider via telehealth?
When you call to schedule an appointment at SNCC, our scheduling team will let you know if a telehealth visit is an option. If you currently have an appointment with SNCC and would like to see if a telehealth appointment is an option for that appointment, please reach out to us at 402-420-7000 for more information.
