The Doctor of the Future Makes House-Calls with Telemedicine

You know how history has a way of repeating itself?

Well that is certainly true for medicine.

In the past doctors made house calls with a horse and wagon. Then doctors moved into brick and mortar buildings and patients came to them.  Now with changes in technology, and new laws, doctors can once again make house calls via a computer and a high-speed Internet connection.

This provides a huge value to you as a consumer and opens up new possibilities that were not possible before.

I recently had a patient who was vacationing in Fiji and traveling around that part of the world for a few months. She had some concerns about her health and questions about an upcoming surgery that she wanted to discuss.

Utilizing telemedicine I was able to consult with her face to face and address her concerns as well as consult with her specialist in New York. Together the three of us were able to collaborate on her healthcare. The best part was she was able to do all of this while sitting in her hotel room in Fiji.

She got to meet with the doctors on her team, have her questions answered, and come up with a solid strategy for her health. Most importantly she got peace of mind so that she could enjoy the rest of her vacation.

Telemedicine has countless benefits. The biggest one that stands out here is increased accessibility. When you use telemedicine you increase your access to your doctors and specialists, wherever and whenever you need to.

This is a huge value to you as a patient. The doctor that you know and trust is just an Internet connection away from consulting with you. Better service without compromise.

I honor you,
