Telehealth Q & A

What is telehealth?

Telehealth, also known as telemedicine, is any health care that is dispensed via technology. At UrgentMed, you can arrange for a virtual visit and receive care remotely. During a virtual visit, your UrgentMed doctor can diagnose, manage, and educate you on matters such as:

  • Counseling
  • Occupational therapy
  • Physical therapy
  • Chronic disease management and monitoring

Other forms of telehealth include prescriptions that you can fill online and online patient portals where you can schedule appointments, review notes and results from past visits, and communicate with your health care providers.

With telemedicine, you can even upload your blood glucose readings for your doctor to read, record health and wellness activities, and track vital signs.

How can telehealth benefit me?

Telehealth is revolutionizing health care. With virtual visits and telemedicine, you can save travel time and money on appointments and gas. In addition, telehealth offers health care for those:

  • In remote and rural areas
  • Without adequate transportation
  • Short on time
  • Physically unable to leave the house

Virtual visits are a great choice not only for when you can’t make it to the doctor, but they are also for when your illness or injuries aren’t that serious. Over a virtual visit, your doctor or nurse can evaluate minor illnesses and injuries. They can also check in to get progress reports on ongoing health issues.

How do virtual visits work?

Depending on your health concerns, virtual visits can work a few different ways. They may involve video conferencing, or they may simply involve a series of guided questions that you answer without seeing or hearing your health practitioner.

Based on your virtual visit, your doctor or nurse practitioner can offer home health care advice, prescribe medication, or make suggestions for further care. They can also “send you” over for a virtual visit with a specialist.

To make sure you get the health care you need, no matter where you are and no matter your circumstances, UrgentMed offers telehealth, including telemedicine prescriptions and virtual visits.
