New Trends in Telemedicine: What Patients Need to Know

We are in a world where technology is creating improvements in most industries, and the health sector is no exception. Healthcare providers are providing many healthcare services through telemedicine, changing the healthcare sector. This post details everything you need to know about telehealth services and the benefits of telehealth for you and your family.

What is Telehealth?

Telehealth involves virtual devices like computers and smartphones. They can connect patients with their healthcare team.  For example, it could be real-time face-to-face conversations with your PCP from the comfort of your own home. This allows you to not have to spend time traveling to the office.

It can also be sharing information. A patient with diabetes could use their mobile phones or laptops to upload important information for their nurse. This can allow one to get a diagnosis. They could also order medications and other testing supplies and send the test samples to their healthcare providers.

A recent study from revealed that 67% of patients prefer telemedicine. With telehealth, you can solve many health concerns. This includes allergies, gastrointestinal diseases, and mental health conditions.

Patient Portal

A patient portal provides secure access to electronic medical records to patients and providers. Your healthcare clinic may have this type of portal that acts as an alternative to email.

With the patient portal, you can now have a more effortless and secure way to do basic activities. This includes:

  • Reaching out to your medical provider
  • Ordering medications
  • Checking test results
  • Looking at previous visits’ health records.
  • Scheduling appointments with your doctor.

Virtual Appointments

Virtual appointments are among the essential telehealth trends revolutionizing healthcare. It only takes a smartphone or computer with the internet.

With virtual appointments, you can see your doctor without driving, parking, or sitting in a waiting room. It is an easy and quick way to have your appointment.

Clinics can use telehealth visits for chronic or new illnesses. The service might guide you through questions about your health before connecting you with your provider for the visit.  The physician will then create a treatment plan.

This treatment plan might include:

  • Prescription medication
  • Lab testing
  • Attending therapy sessions
  • Seeking further medical care

Remote Monitoring

Remote monitoring is a type of medical treatment. It uses the latest technology to collect patients’ data away from a typical physical clinic or hospital setting.

Remote patient monitoring brings healthcare from an in-office setting to where patients live or work. This way, you can save that trip to the doctor and focus more on your recovery.

Remote monitoring may involve using:

  • Devices that test and send results through a wireless connection.
  • Wearable devices that record and send information on heart rate, tremors, sleep patterns, and posture control.
  • Monitoring devices that can detect changes in activities. These devices are perfect for monitoring the elderly or patients with dementia.
  • Mobile apps or web-based services to upload your health information for a doctor’s review
