Even though various states have begun the process of reopening, telehealth which caught on during the COVID-19 pandemic is here to stay. It’s a safer way for patients to keep in touch with their doctors in non-emergency matters. For those of you who is not familiar with the term telehealth, check out what wikipedia has to say, in italics, below:
Telehealth is the distribution of health-related services and information via electronic information and telecommunication technologies. It allows long-distance patient and clinician contact, care, advice, reminders, education, intervention, monitoring, and remote admissions. Telemedicine is sometimes used as a synonym, or is used in a more limited sense to describe remote clinical services, such as diagnosis and monitoring. When rural settings, lack of transport, a lack of mobility, decreased funding, or a lack of staff restrict access to care, telehealth may bridge the gap. as well as provider distance-learning; meetings, supervision, and presentations between practitioners; online information and health data management and healthcare system integration. Telehealth could include two clinicians discussing a case over video conference; a robotic surgery occurring through remote access; physical therapy done via digital monitoring instruments, live feed and application combinations; tests being forwarded between facilities for interpretation by a higher specialist; home monitoring through continuous sending of patient health data; client to practitioner online conference; or even videophone interpretation during a consult.
Dr. Andre Muelenaer is able to provide the same level of care for patients outside of Roanoke through telemedicine technology. Watch this video to see how the technology works and the convenience it provides for our patients, in the video “How Telemedicine Is Making Care Convenient“, below:
While health care is subject to constant political debate, practitioners dutifully do their jobs to the best of their ability.
