What Is Telemedicine?
First things first—what is telemedicine exactly? Also known as telehealth, telemedicine connects a patient with a medical professional via a smartphone, tablet, or computer with a webcam. This “face-to-face” meeting allows the patient to receive expert health guidance while remaining in bed or lounging on the couch. There are multiple benefits to this approach—for example, a contagious patient won’t spread germs to others in a waiting area, and someone who lacks reliable transportation or has a physical disability can easily consult with a medical professional from home.
Still, telemedicine isn’t right for every patient. If you or someone around you is in severe discomfort or is experiencing potentially life-threatening symptoms—such as trouble breathing, uncontrolled bleeding, or loss of consciousness—call 911 or go to the nearest emergency room immediately.
