What is Telehealth?
Telehealth is the newest way to consult and treat patients over the internet. It is very useful in assisting patients who have trouble leaving their home because of a medical condition or from some type of phobia. Telehealth is defined as “the use of electronic information and telecommunications technologies to support long-distance clinical health care, patient and professional health-related education, public health and health administration” (healthit.gov, 2017).
Telehealth medicine at Mango Clinic in Miami can be provided through our online platform that offers video chat for patients. This allows our doctors to meet with you at your convenience. Our patients can meet with our doctors from virtually anywhere as long as they have a connection to the internet. Telehealth is a remote medical service that allows doctors to offer non-clinical medical assistance to patients who do not require a physical appointment.
How can Telehealth help me?
Many patients have trouble leaving their homes because of a medical condition or a phobia that prevents them from going into public. Telehealth medicine can help those people visit with a doctor from the comfort of their own home.
In some instances, telehealth can help you by providing immediate medical care for services that do not involve a physical examination. Keep in mind that some services will require an in-person visit for the initial evaluation and examination. Through telehealth, our doctors help patients by having the ability to meet with more patients throughout the day.
