What Do Telemedicine Services Provide?
Telehealth services provide healthcare visits and resources to patients virtually, making these more accessible to remote or isolated peoples. Telemedicine usually comes in the form of a virtual visit, where the healthcare provider can do certain types of exams, make diagnoses, and even write up a prescription all over a video conference, so you never have to leave the comfort of your home.
Though not every health issue can be handled over a video visit, telemedicine can perform much more than you think. You can meet with a variety of professionals— including doctors, physician’s assistants, nurses, and pharmacists— who complete the needed evaluations, tests, and discuss your symptoms with you. To aid these tasks, telehealth platforms often also include digital transmission of images, records, and other materials.
This revolutionary kind of healthcare is not only more convenient for both patients and doctors but it also creates more accessibility to the specific doctors you need, to the pharmacies you need, and can help prevent the spread of contagious diseases. This last reason is why telehealth has become so incredibly important today.
Why A Telehealth Pharmacy Is Important Right Now
This already-growing field of healthcare has become an especially useful tool for doctors during the current COVID-19 pandemic. Social distancing guidelines are still in place worldwide, but this does not stop illnesses of all kinds. Many still need to see their doctors, get their prescriptions, and consult professionals about current ailments, without risking their health by going to epicenters of the disease (hospitals themselves).
Telemedicine services, therefore, are the perfect solution for check-ups and check-ins, for treating common and/or minor health issues, and for evaluating possible coronavirus symptoms, so that your doctor can be more sure if it’s worth risking you coming in for an in-person coronavirus test.
Common Ailments & Issues Telehealth Can Be Used For:
- Back pain
- Cold/sinus congestion
- Eye problems
- Ear infections
- Rashes and skin conditions
- (Some) Mental health counseling
How is a telepharmacy, like Executive Pharmacy, added to the mix? Telemedicine visits with pharmacists are often used to check in with post-hospital patients, getting them the medication they need, and making sure there are no adverse symptoms. This makes taking care of yourself even easier while complying with social distancing guidelines.
Every day Executive Pharmacy uses our decades of experience and top-quality ingredients to promote better health by making medicine personal. That’s always been our mission, whether we’re treating you in person or over the phone. That’s why we’ve become the telehealth pharmacy Broward county residents have come to trust most. Call us now.
