Telemedicine--Another Innovative Way To Receive Care
By: Randy S. Gerber, Esq., Founder of Pacient.care
Last week I wrote about precision medicine as one of the innovative ways we get our health care. Another innovative way of getting treatment is telemedicine. Simply put, telemedicine allows doctors and other healthcare providers in one location to use electronic tools such as your smartphone or laptop computer to diagnose, monitor and treat you in another location. Think of telemedicine as an electronic house call.
A few months ago, a three-way partnership among Amazon.com Inc., Berkshire Hathaway Inc. and JPMorgan Chase & Co. was announced that got the attention of the healthcare industry. One of the goals of this partnership is to give people more access to telemedicine.
Many of us have never been exposed to telemedicine and have no idea how it works. Take a minute and read a quick plain language explanation of telemedicine and how it can help with your care.
