Telehealth has been among the catchphrases thrown around in this global health crisis, and for a good reason—as it had been the major way that medical and healthcare professionals have been able to see patients and provide them with healthcare services.
We see the convenience made possible by the technology ourselves not only to patients but also to doctors and other healthcare professionals in our very own platform of telehealth and telemedicine in Los Angeles, California.
Here are some of the most important reasons behind this:
- Telehealth supports the community in fighting off the pandemic by encouraging social distancing.
- Telehealth serves as a triage, letting healthcare professionals assess the severity of a patient’s situation before requesting an in-person visit or further treatment.
- Telehealth eases some of the burdens on the healthcare setting by filtering patients who need further treatment from those who can be supervised at home.
- Telehealth accommodates different patient situations such as those of senior patients who are among the very high-risk demography for the coronavirus, patients whose first language is not English, patients looking for a cheaper alternative to office visits, patients who live far away, among others.
That said, we still recommend that along with getting your telehealth in CA, an expert second opinion should also be on your list.
