Monitoring vital signs, collecting or evaluating diagnostic findings, performing follow-ups – digital concepts for patient care are appearing in more and more areas of application.
If you like the idea of seeing a doctor over a video conference on your laptop or smartphone, you are not alone. According to research by Software Advice, 75% of survey respondents are interested in trying telemedicine.
Telemedicine has been used in a limited way for decades, but it is only now becoming more mainstream. This is because so many people have access to high-speed internet connections and the devices necessary to perform a video visit. The approach is popular with patients due to its many advantages.
Many of us have the responsibility of caring for children or older adults. Finding alternative care so that you can see the doctor can be difficult and expensive. Bringing them along can be stressful or impractical. Fortunately, telemedicine solves this challenge by allowing you to see a doctor while upholding your family responsibilities.
When you are able to see a doctor as often as you need to, without the challenges of getting into the office, you can practice better management of your medication, lifestyle, and any chronic conditions you might have.
When you see a doctor on your mobile device or computer, you can save money on gas, parking, and public transportation. Even better, you don’t waste time traveling or risk running into a traffic jam that makes you late for your appointment, or worse, late getting back to work.
It is not surprising that people are seeking out healthcare providers that offer the convenience and cost-effectiveness of telehealth. It is poised to have a major positive impact on the entire healthcare system, and ready to make life a little bit easier for you.
Such a method of providing healthcare services is beneficial to people who live far from the clinic or have mobility difficulties that prevent them from traveling to a different location.
It saves your time and allows you to consult a doctor from the comfort of your home as well as learn the possible provisional diagnosis in advance. Telemedicine is useful for patients that need a previous consultation before the treatment or require post-therapy medical advice.
Don’t hesitate to contact us to ask for a consultation, preliminary diagnosis, or ask for advice on taking your medications including the dosage, method, and time of the day.
