Scheduling Virtual Consults During the Coronavirus Crisis
Virtual Consultations Virginia
In the midst of this pandemic, telemedicine has become more popular and valuable than ever before. Especially, as 95% of Americans are under stay-at-home orders and practicing social distancing.
Continue reading to learn why telemedicine is on the rise and what patients can expect from a virtual visit.
What is a Virtual Consultation?
A virtual consultation, also referred to as telemedicine, is a scheduled appointment that’s conducted digitally rather than in person.
Using technology like Zoom and a laptop, tablet, or smartphone, patients are able to talk with a specialist face to face and in real-time.
In many ways, it’s just like any other visit, except that you don’t have to leave the comfort and safety of your home.
Why Are More and More People Scheduling Virtual Consultations During the Coronavirus Pandemic?
There are a number of reasons why more and more people are scheduling virtual consultations during the coronavirus crisis.
To start, telemedicine allows patients to confer with their doctors about various symptoms or concerns without any type of physical contact.
This not only helps to reduce the risk of being exposed to COVID-19, it also limits the chance of an asymptomatic individual spreading the disease to others.
What’s more, virtual consults are able to address routine medical issues and triage questionable symptoms, while keeping emergency rooms free for truly urgent and critical cases.
Virtual visits are also extremely efficient and avoid the hassle of commuting to the office.
So much so, that many patients who’ve had telemedicine appointments say that they are likely to use telemedicine in the future.
Finally, with additional time on their hands, many women and men are taking a much-needed break for self-care.
This includes scheduling virtual consultations during the coronavirus to address cosmetic concerns related to their skin, face, and body.
