Telemedicine Q&A

What is telemedicine?

Telemedicine enables you to visit with your health care provider from the convenience of your home or office without needing to see them in person. Via secure communications technologies, you use a mobile device, laptop, or PC. 

The telemedicine experience is similar to talking with friends and family on a video call, but with sophisticated security that protects your personal information.

VIP Integrative Healthcare’s telemedicine system is HIPAA (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act) compliant. This means you can be sure your personal health information and patient-doctor confidentiality are secure.

What benefits does telemedicine offer?

Using telemedicine instead of visiting VIP Integrative Healthcare in person has some significant benefits, such as:

  • Convenient access to your provider
  • Needing less time off work
  • Not incurring travel costs
  • Not having to arrange childcare
  • Not exposing yourself to infection
  • Improved comfort
  • Less time out of your day

Telemedicine is particularly beneficial for people with mental health conditions. When you have a problem like depression or anxiety, leaving the protection of your home or changing your routine can be extremely stressful. With telemedicine, you receive the same high-quality treatment without the pressure of leaving your safe place. 

What can I expect from telemedicine?

Booking your telemedicine appointment at VIP Integrative Healthcare is simple. Phone the office or go online and schedule a suitable time slot. Your provider will call you via a secure line at the time you’ve arranged and conduct the consultation exactly the same way they would in person.

You can discuss your progress and any new problems that have arisen since your last appointment. You can also receive counseling or specialized therapies like cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) for mental health conditions.

If you have a physical health problem, your provider might ask to see the area of concern, like a mole changing shape or how you walk if you have back pain. You might need to visit the practice if you need a blood test or other procedure. However, in many cases, your provider can make an accurate diagnosis using telemedicine.

You can also receive electronic prescriptions if your provider recommends medications for your condition.

Telemedicine has considerable advantages for most patients. To see if you can benefit from a telemedicine consultation, call VIP Integrative Healthcare today or book a telemedicine appointment using the online form.
