How does a Telemedicine appointment work?
A telemedicine appointment is just like a regular health care appointment, only the provider you will be seeing and speaking with will be available remotely via videoconferencing. Telemedicine allows you to discuss symptoms, medical issues, and more with a healthcare provider in real time. Using telemedicine, you can receive a diagnosis, learn your treatment options, and get a prescription. Before your appointment, you will be emailed and text a link that will contact you to the provider for your online visit.
What are the benefits of a Telemedicine appointment?
- A telemedicine appointment reduces the time, cost and risk of travel for individuals, families and care providers.
- Telemedicine allows you to have access to specialized services outside your community without you having to leave your community.
