A Few Secrets about Telemedicine Companies
You may not have heard very much about telemedicine previously because, though it’s existed for the last 40 years, it hasn’t been in force around the world until the past ten years or so.
The lack of awareness about telemedicine as a field may be partially due to the fact that it is difficult to be licensured in telemedicine. Because of the lawsuit possibilities, physicians must follow stringent regulations. Because state boards are responsible for each state’s healthcare licensing, that means that practicing over state lines had required health systems to license their doctors in every state. However, now in the USA, EU and many other countries, telemedicine is now regulated at the highest level of governmental standards.
What technologies are involved in telemedicine? Patient consultations may be conducted over video conferencing, with use of other data collection technologies such as transmission of still images, remote monitoring of vitals, and patient portals for easy access to data.
The Benefits of Telemedicine
At Wellworks For You, we’ve been impressed with the variety of medical services that can be utilized through telemedicine with Wellvia. It sounds a little like “telephone,” but as you’ve seen, the term involves so much more! Here are the reasons why people will opt in:
The average wait for a doctor’s visit has been calculated at 18.5 days for specialties and 19.5 for regular family doctors! Considering that you will probably sit in the waiting room for 20-30 minutes and then maybe get an appointment for only that long. Then factor in the time it took you away from your work to get there, and you’ll see that healthcare ends up meaning a lot of wasted time with a short period in-person contact to boot. But with our package, you’ll get a call back in an average 16 minutes!
Doctors are only available during the days, and after hours all you get is an answering service which may or may not transmit your message to the doctor right away. Telemedicine is available through our Wellvia package 24/7! When you have an urgent medical concern that takes place after hours, will you want to drive to the emergency room?…Or just call us?
You don’t sacrifice quality for convenience. All of our doctors are licensed according to the highest standards and have an average of 10 years experience. In addition, we are accessible in EVERY state!
