What to know about telehealth

Telehealth is here to stay. The trend started to really take off when the pandemic began, but now more doctors and consumers have embraced it. So, what does that mean for you? Here is everything you need to know about telehealth.

What is Telehealth?

Telehealth is a way for healthcare providers to issue care without having to see you in person. While telehealth is mostly done through video chat, it can also be done via texts and phone calls. Some healthcare providers also use telehealth to monitor patients remotely.

What is Telehealth Used For?

Telehealth visits cover all sorts of issues. Usually, your doctor will tell you if a telehealth visit is an option or if they’d prefer you come into their office. Here are just some of the types of care you can receive with telehealth:

  • Test results
  • Therapy and counseling
  • Medication advice and management
  • Minor ailments like colds, coughs and stomach aches
  • Physical therapy and occupational therapy
  • Remote monitoring for issues like high blood pressure

What are the Benefits of Telehealth?

The main benefit of telehealth is that it can save you time. Instead of having to commute to the doctor’s office, you can just log onto your computer at home. Telehealth also cuts down on your exposure to germs.

How Much Does Telehealth Cost?

That’s the other big benefit. Telehealth is cheaper for everyone involved. While doctor’s save some cash, you will too. In fact, one study found that the average cost of a telehealth visit was $79, compared to $146 for an in-person visit.
