Telehealth works by scheduling an appointment with your provider, just as you would for an in-person visit. The key difference is that you interact with them remotely, usually through video calls.
During your telehealth appointment, you discuss your health concerns, just like in a regular visit. Your provider can diagnose your condition, prescribe medications, provide counseling, and offer advice. They can also view your medical history and records, making it easier to provide tailored care.
Telehealth is incredibly convenient if you have mobility challenges, live in a remote area, or have a very busy schedule. It's also particularly useful during public health emergencies, such as the COVID-19 pandemic, when in-person visits might not be safe or possible.
Telehealth can be a lifesaver if you need ongoing care, as it reduces the need for frequent in-person visits. It can also serve as an initial point of contact for minor health issues, allowing you to decide whether an in-person visit is necessary.
