What are the types of telemedicine?

Northeast Medical, PC uses telemedicine in three ways: to interact, to monitor, and to share. Here’s a closer look at each:

Interact

Like an in-person consultation, interactive medicine is a way for physicians and patients to communicate in real time, over the phone or through digital platforms.

Monitor

Patients play an active role in remote monitoring. They’re responsible for collecting data using mobile medical equipment and then sharing the data with their doctor.

Share

A practice called “store and forward” allows caregivers to share essential patient health information with other medical professionals, if relevant. 

Telemedicine offers efficient, effective patient care when you need it most.

What are the benefits of telemedicine?

There are many benefits to scheduling a telemedicine consultation. They include:

Reduced emergency visits

Many people avoid seeing a doctor simply because they don’t have the time. Telemedicine is fast and convenient, so people are more likely to get a health concern checked out rather than ignore it.

Fast diagnosis

You may worry that telemedicine isn’t as comprehensive as an in-person appointment. In most cases, your doctor can quickly reach an accurate diagnosis without you leaving your home.

Preventive care

It’s easier to stay on top of potential illness or disease when you can have a quick appointment over the phone to discuss symptoms or health data.

Less expensive

Telemedicine is often a more affordable alternative to in-person appointments, as it doesn’t require the same overheads. 

Everyone has busy lives. Telemedicine is an innovative way to seek the treatment you need. If you have a health concern, don’t ignore it. Reach out to the team at Northeast Medical, PC today by phone or through the online inquiry form.
