What is Telemedicine?
Telemedicine originated as a way for healthcare professionals to treat patients who were located in areas that were remote or had a shortage of providers. While telemedicine is still used today to address that need, the recent advances in smartphone and computer technology have made it more accessible to everyone. And with the rising costs of healthcare and wait times reaching into the hours, visits to ERs and urgent care clinics have made seeing a provider when you’re sick, time-consuming and very expensive. Telemedicine benefit packages have therefore become an increasingly popular option offered to patients by employers as a way to receive convenient medical care, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
What can Telehealth be used for? If you’re having trouble getting in to see a doctor, our U.S. board-certified, state-licensed doctors can diagnose, recommend treatment, and prescribe medication when necessary for many of your medical issues.
