What Can You Use Telemedicine For?
Over the last ten years, we have seen an increasingly strong relationship develop between individuals and their smart devices. This includes smartphones, tablets, and other devices. In even more recent years, especially in our current year, we have seen the push for alternative medicine in order to help patients access convenient and affordable healthcare without the risks or hassles of in-office doctor’s appointments. The list of reasons why telemedicine is an excellent solution for patients searching for alternative healthcare goes on and on, with a strong focus being convenience and lack of exposure to other potentially ill patients. So what can you use telemedicine for?
Telemedicine is an excellent and simple option for patients seeking non-emergency medical care. This virtual alternative can be used across nearly every field of medicine including treatment for acute illness, chronic disease management, and even post-surgical care. Telemedicine is a solution for those with busy schedules, those who are not interested in commuting to their physician’s office, and for those who wish to minimize their exposure to other patients.
Listed below are some of the most common conditions that can be treated and managed by a virtual physician:
Cold or Cough: Most patients that are suffering from a cold or cough do not need to book a doctor’s appointment in order to get treatment. Traveling to your physician’s office only increases the odds of spreading illness, or becoming infected with another illness. At RoweDocs our physicians can ask basic screening questions to determine the severity of the condition.
Hypertension: Blood pressure treatment is one of the most common reasons for patients to schedule appointments with their physicians. At RoweDocs we make it simple for patients to have their needs met with our online, virtual hypertension appointments. Schedule your appointment today to learn more about how we can help you manage your blood pressure without the need for in-office appointments.
Skin Conditions: Providers can easily see dermatological conditions in detail with the high-quality cameras that are included with most smartphones. Our physicians will be able to identify the issue and prescribe the proper treatment through our pharmacy.
