Why You Should Use Virtual Doctors Visits During COVID-19

How can telehealth benefit me?

Telehealth has been shown to overcome barriers to health services caused by the distance between patient and provider, access to reliable transportation, fragmentation of care due to gaps in time between appointments, and lack of available providers. One of the biggest concerns under the Covid-19 pandemic avoiding infection. By using telehealth, you can keep up with your health care while staying home!

Telemedicine improves patient engagement and satisfaction

Telemedicine makes it easier and more convenient for patients to stay healthy and engaged in their health care. Patients love the convenience, flexibility, and real-time care with their providers. Treat telemedicine as a Virtual House Call. Doctors used to make house calls way back when and now they can do it virtually. Patients can avoid a waiting room full of sick people and avoid unwanted infections by simply using telehealth from their safe, secure space.

Healthcare on Demand

By taking advantage of video visits for nonemergency appointments, we can help communities to decrease unnecessary travel and keep community members and medical professionals healthy.
