Telemedicine Q & A

What Is Telemedicine?​​​​

Telemedicine is a form of healthcare delivery that uses telecommunications technology to provide remote and effective medical services. With telemedicine, clinical health professionals can diagnose and treat patients remotely, allowing them to receive the same quality of care from the comfort of their homes.

For instance, First Care Medical Clinic allows our patients to receive remote diagnosis, prescriptions, and follow-up care. We also provide an alternative to costly and time-consuming trips to the doctor.

How Does Telemedicine Work?

Telemedicine allows patients to connect with medical professionals via phone, video chat, or other secure platforms. These online consultations provide a safe and secure environment for sharing medical information.

Patients need to access our secure telemedicine platform using a computer or mobile device. A stable internet connection is also essential to ensure high-quality video and audio for a successful telemedicine session.

Each session allows the physician to observe a patient’s symptoms, ask questions, and request additional information. An appropriate treatment plan is provided, including prescriptions if necessary.

Sometimes, the physician may require additional tests or a physical examination before diagnosing. In these cases, we will help our patients locate a suitable clinic for further testing.

Health Concerns That Can Be Addressed by Telemedicine​​​

Many medical concerns can be addressed appropriately with telemedicine. These include diagnosing and treating minor illnesses, such as:

  • Colds and flu
  • Allergies
  • Urinary tract infections
  • Skin conditions
  • Conjunctivitis
  • Skin Infections
  • Sinusitis
  • Sore throat
  • Sunburn
  • Nausea

However, telemedicine may not be ideal for specific medical conditions requiring more complex diagnoses and treatments. These include:

  • Chronic medical conditions
  • Severe infections or illnesses
  • High-risk pregnancy
  • Mental health issues

Injuries requiring surgery or imaging tests

Who Needs Telemedicine?

Telemedicine is a convenient and efficient way for patients to access medical care without visiting a clinic. It’s especially useful for:

  • People living in remote areas
  • Patients with busy schedules
  • Elderly people with limited mobility
  • People who are unable to take time off work or school to visit a doctor

Telemedicine enables people to access the same quality of care without leaving the house. This is ideal for patients who live in rural areas with limited medical resources. Professionals who do not have enough time to visit a doctor can also get the necessary care without taking time off work.
