Do you have difficulty getting to doctor appointments due to your work schedule?
Are you a busy parent, and don’t have time to schedule or keep appointments for yourself?
Are you tired of fighting traffic to get to appointments?
Do you have social anxiety or phobias that make it difficult for you to get out in public?
Do you have a health condition that makes it hard to get out and drive to appointments?
Then Telehealth may be the solution for you!
Telehealth (or telemedicine) is a fairly recent innovation. Telehealth allows the facilitation of health-related services to patients via live video conferencing. Thanks to modern technology, just about everyone in the U.S. has a smart phone, computer, or tablet capable of video chat. This ease of access to make video calls has revolutionized the health industry, allowing healthcare providers to interact with patients through a convenient phone call.
Telehealth appointments can be very beneficial if getting to a traditional in-person appointment is a hassle for you. If you lack the time or resources to drive to an appointment, are physically disabled or live in a remote area, telehealth appointments can help by removing the need to leave your home to attend an appointment.
In 2018, approximately 8 million healthcare appointments were held via online video telehealth sessions.
There’s no need to get ready, or even leave your bed or couch. Telehealth makes it easier for you to get therapy!
