Telemedicine Q & A
What is telemedicine?
Telemedicine uses modern technologies, like tablets, smartphones, and computers, to share medical information over the internet. It makes it easy to connect with your health care provider without having to fight traffic or sit in a waiting room.
Telemedicine has existed for over 40 years, but it only recently gained popularity. Thanks to its affordability and convenience, you can receive the care you need exactly when you need it.
What are the benefits of telemedicine?
Compared to traditional in-office visits, telemedicine provides various benefits. For one, busy parents and other family caretakers can see a doctor without finding a babysitter or making other arrangements. What’s more, telemedicine prevents exposure to others. Since you don’t have to leave home, you don’t have to spend time around other people who might be sick.
Telemedicine even makes access to care easier. For example, if you live in a rural area, you can use the technology to meet with a specialist in a different city. Most insurance providers cover it, so there’s no worry about out-of-pocket costs either.
What are some of the services that telemedicine provides?
At JAM Wellness Clinics, the team offers various services through telemedicine, including:
- Diagnosis of acute injuries and illnesses
- Prescription refills
- Monitoring of chronic illnesses
- Review of X-rays, lab tests, and blood work
The team also uses telemedicine to answer questions and counsel individuals on the importance of good nutrition, regular exercise, and proper sleep hygiene.
What happens during a telemedicine consultation?
At JAM Wellness Clinics, the team tailors telemedicine consultations to individuals’ needs. Most visits begin with a discussion of your symptoms, including their severity, when they first started, and if at-home treatments like over-the-counter inflammatory medication provide relief.
After gathering that information, your provider might have you point your camera at a certain part of your body. For example, if you have a sore throat, they might ask you to open your mouth and say “ah.” If you’re experiencing abdominal pain, they might have you pull up your shirt so they can check for swelling or redness.
If your provider can’t make a proper diagnosis via telemedicine, they might ask you to visit the nearest practice location for an in-person appointment.
What do I need for a telemedicine appointment?
To ensure your telemedicine appointment goes smoothly, make sure you have a working smartphone, tablet, or computer and a strong internet connection. Plus, you need a private location without interruptions.
