Telehealth has been around since the 1960s but didn't gain popularity until the COVID-19 pandemic began.
It’s Cost-EffectiveTelehealth is cheaper for both patients and healthcare professionals. For example, by removing the need to travel to a doctor’s office, patients save money on transport as well as childcare.
It Saves TimeBy removing the need to travel, telehealth saves patients a significant amount of time.
It Reduces Feelings of Stress and AnxietyTaking a call from your own couch immediately instills a sense of ease and familiarity that you won’t get by going to a clinic.
It’s Great for Patients Who Live in a Rural AreaThanks to the technology that powers telehealth, people in more remote parts of the country can enjoy quick, easy, and high-quality care from trusted providers.
It’s Safer Choosing a telehealth consultation means you don't have to leave the safety of your home or risk being exposed to diseases, such as COVID-19.
It Allows Doctors to Reach More PatientsTelehealth eliminates the physical distance between patients and care providers. All it takes is a good internet connection, and the delivery of healthcare services is guaranteed.
It Increases RevenuesTelehealth helps healthcare providers increase their productivity. Doctors can choose to work longer hours, in order to see more patients.
It Boosts Patient SatisfactionPerhaps the best benefit of telehealth is that patients are more satisfied with the medical care they receive during a telehealth visit, compared to a traditional in-person doctor visit.
Whether you are concerned about your blood pressure, want to learn how to boost your immune system or discuss weight loss, telehealth is the ideal solution for your holistic healthcare needs.
