Telehealth is helping many patients by offering health services in a world where Covid-19 has made visiting a doctor challenging and unsafe. But do virtual doctor’s appointments work and how do they compare with in-person appointments? here are some of the benefits telehealth has offered patients:
Treatment when you need it the most – Telehealth lets patients consult a doctor as soon as they suffer from an accident or feel ill, eliminating long travel times, lengthy waiting periods, and reducing discomfort.
Remote care – Patients who live in remote areas can greatly benefit from virtual appointments because they eliminate lengthy travel times and the risk of contracting Covid-19 when using public transport.
Reduced costs – Virtual appointments can be affordable as you will not need to take time off work, incur travel costs, pay for childcare, or spend time in waiting rooms. They are also not as expensive as in-person appointments as they do not involve the use of a hospital appointment room or nursing staff.
Improved communication – Patients may be more open with their doctor as they might feel comfortable in their own homes, resulting in them remembering vital information about their lifestyle, health, and previous medication.
Secure sharing of medical information – Telehealth services offer secure networks with privacy policies that involve the online sharing of information. As an added benefit your healthcare information is also accessible to you at any time, which means that you can keep track of your medical details for future appointments.
