What is telemedicine?

Telemedicine allows you to connect remotely to your health care provider using an online platform. Telemedicine makes it possible for you to meet with a physician or nurse from the comfort of your own home, car, or place of work. 

Not all conditions qualify for telemedicine appointments, but the option gives many people the opportunity to connect with a medical professional when they just can’t make it to a physical office. 

What happens during a telemedicine appointment?

You’ll schedule your telemedicine visit in advance. The team at CAHEP provides you with directions as to how you’ll log on and meet with your provider. 

Log on a few minutes early to navigate any glitches and, at your appointment time, you video chat with your provider. 

Your provider gives you their undivided attention as you discuss your symptoms and medical needs. 

What types of medical issues can be addressed with telemedicine?

Your CAHEP provider uses telemedicine appointments to:

  • Review your symptoms
  • Prescribe new medications or renew existing prescriptions
  • Evaluate an existing treatment plan
  • Discuss lab test results
  • Provide nutritional or behavioral health counseling
  • Refer you to a specialist

Visits on the telemedicine platform can help you determine if you need to schedule an in-office visit for diagnostic testing or other medical services. 

What are the benefits of telemedicine?

The primary benefit of telemedicine is its convenience. If you aren’t able to travel to the office for medical care because of illness, disability, or a lack of transportation or child care, a telemedicine visit gives you the access you need.

Telemedicine services make care available to patients in the community who otherwise might not get the screenings, health education, and treatments they need. These patients may not have access to high-quality medical care in their immediate community. 

Telemedicine means no travel costs and appointment flexibility. Plus, you don’t have to worry about waiting in an office with other patients who have potentially contagious illnesses.
