TELEMEDICINE Q&A

What is telemedicine?

Telemedicine is the incorporation of telecommunications with traditional medical practice. While telemedicine became prevalent during the height of the COVID-19 pandemic, it’s nothing new. Ever since most homes had a telephone installed, people have been connecting with their health providers remotely.

Advancements in video connectivity mean that you and your primary care provider can now both see and hear each other, which makes it far easier for your provider to accurately diagnose many conditions and guide your care.

What are some benefits of telemedicine?

Convenience is a primary benefit of telemedicine. The ability to connect with your health team no matter where you are means you won’t have to experience a lapse in care. Whether you’re across town or on the other side of the globe, telemedicine allows you to receive support and guidance from a practitioner you already know and trust.

Telemedicine visits allow you to receive care without driving across town, waiting for an appointment, and then traveling back to your home or place of employment. You can fit these visits into your existing schedule, which is a huge benefit for busy professionals, parents, and those with less flexibility in their daily schedules.

Telemedicine is a wonderful solution for people with a compromised immune system or otherwise medically fragile. Connecting with your care team from home eliminates the risk of contracting an illness from exposure to others and encountering issues with the weather, road conditions, and other factors.

How should I prepare for my telemedicine visit?

Taking a few moments to prepare for your visit helps you get the most out of your telemedicine connection. Begin by considering where to set up for your visit. You can complete a telemedicine visit using a desktop, laptop, tablet, or even a video-equipped cell phone.

Try to find a place that is out of the main traffic areas of your home, office, or setting. Think about the ambient sound, and look for a place where you can hear well and speak freely. You should also set your device up in an area that has a power supply if there is any question about having sufficient battery power to complete the visit.
