What is telemedicine?

Telemedicine is a service that allows you to communicate with your health care provider when a visit to the office either isn’t possible or isn’t convenient. Rather than attending an appointment in person at Priority Medical Group, you can log in and speak with your provider using high-definition video and audio on your phone, computer, or tablet. 

You can get many services with telemedicine, but you may still need to visit the office for certain services and tests. However, telemedicine simplifies the ability to follow up with your physician after a treatment or to get the care you need when you’re out of town or have other obligations that prevent you from traveling to your appointments. 

A part of telemedicine, Priority Medical Group offers remote patient monitoring for many chronic illnesses. Using technology such as connected medical devices, your provider can track the course of a certain health condition or evaluate the results of a treatment from afar. 

What are the benefits of telemedicine?

Telemedicine has extensive benefits for you as the patient and for your providers. While weighing your health care options, consider these telemedicine advantages:

  • No cost of travel
  • No time off work
  • No risk of catching or transmitting illnesses
  • Improved communication between you and your provider
  • Less chance of missing an appointment
  • The ability to stay in touch while you travel

You can use telemedicine at Priority Medical Group to supplement your chronic care management plan or to keep up with the primary and preventive services you get on a routine basis. You can also book a telemedicine appointment if you have new or worsening symptoms that your provider can easily evaluate using video chat. 

Which services can I get with telemedicine?

Telemedicine is an excellent choice when it comes to diagnosing and treating an array of physical and behavioral conditions. You can also use telemedicine for preventive care services like basic examinations. 

The experts at Priority Medical Group routinely use telemedicine appointments to evaluate and provide treatment for conditions such as:

  • Anxiety
  • Rashes
  • Insect bites
  • The common cold
  • Depression
  • Diabetes
  • The flu

While acute illnesses like cold and flu resolve quickly and you can improve their symptoms with treatment recommended by your physician, chronic illnesses like diabetes or heart disease require ongoing care. Telemedicine makes it easy to keep up with the care you need for a chronic illness, and your provider might suggest remote patient monitoring too. 

Find out how telemedicine can improve your health care outcomes by scheduling an appointment over the phone or online at Priority Medical Group today.
