Whether you are at home with your kids with no means of transportation to get to your local health clinic or you do not want to go out in public today, sometimes it just isn’t realistic to make an in-person doctor’s appointment. In such situations, a telemedicine consultation can be precisely what the doctor ordered! If you find yourself unable to make it to the doctor’s office, we would be happy to bring the doctor’s office to you with our telemedicine appointments at My Health Reassurance!
What is a telemedicine consultation?
A telemedicine consultation uses telecommunications technology to provide virtual doctor’s appointments to individuals that cannot or would prefer not to have an in-person doctor’s appointment. As such, telemedicine consultations are conducted via a video-conferencing app on your phone, tablet, or computer. With telemedicine consultations, you can have a doctor’s appointment wherever you feel most comfortable! Telemedicine consultations can be used for follow-up visits after surgery or treatment, prescription refills or questions, lab test results, psychotherapy, specialist referrals, chronic illness monitoring and management, and other general health concerns!
How do I prepare for a telehealth appointment?
There is not a lot that you need to do to prepare for a telehealth appointment! However, since you are not meeting with the physician in person, you will want to be as descriptive as you can with your medical concerns and symptoms so that the physician will have a clear idea of how to provide the best medical attention to you. As such, it may be worth your time to write out or plan what you are going to say beforehand, in addition to the questions you want to ask. If your medical concern is external, it may be worthwhile to take well-lit pictures of the area. If you have not seen the physician before, make sure you have all of the essential information on hand. Such information will likely include what medications you take, any allergies you have, and your family medical history. It is also a good idea to check with your health insurance plan to ensure that they will cover telemedicine services. Finally, find a private place with a stable internet connection, grab a pair of headphones, and log into the video-conferencing app to meet with the physician!
How does a telemedicine visit work?
Telemedicine visits work through a secure, third-party, video-conferencing app that both the patient and the physician use to interface with each other. At My Health Reassurance, we use the Kareo app, which works on iPhone, iPad, and Android devices! You can also use your computer to log in, as long as you have Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox installed on your computer. To make a telemedicine appointment with us at My Health Reassurance, request a video visit through our website or call our front desk to schedule an appointment. Upon your request, we will send you an email or text to confirm the appointment time. Be sure to log in 15 minutes before your appointment and have all of the essential information on hand!
