Telehealth and Telemedicine are some of the most modern, 21st Century ways to receive health care – without visiting a doctor’s office or clinic. Especially in today’s world, being able to consult with a healthcare provider remotely, via an electronic device, can be a time-saver and a great help.
Another modern convenience, which is really a throwback to the old days, is doctors that make home visits or house calls, and concierge medicine.
Busy parents often make use of telehealth screenings because it’s just so much more convenient – and expedient – than schlepping across town with a cranky toddler, when maybe all they need is something that can be delivered via a zoom call, saving everyone time and getting everyone better sooner.
These services are also “on-demand,” meaning you may be able to take advantage of them after normal office hours, which is when these things so often come up.
This article from the Mayo Clinic delves more into the benefits of Telehealth and Telemedicine.
Some of these services use an app, some use a website, and some offer even more than what is essentially a Zoom call with a physician. Some allow you to schedule a home visit with a physician, some accept health insurance plans, and some don’t.
Prices vary widely among these services, so you’ll have to check with each one to see the different costs for services.
