At Aspire Regenerative, patients can connect with clinicians easily and conveniently via telemedicine appointments on computers, smartphones, or tablets. If, for any reason, patients can’t make it to our office, they still have access to uninterrupted regenerative medical care on our HIPAA-compliant Zoom video conferencing platform. These virtual visits are an excellent addition to our wide variety of services, and we encourage patients to take advantage of this technology to help manage their health and wellness.
What is Telemedicine?
Telemedicine is an exciting innovation in health care, and it has evolved immensely from its 1950s-era beginnings. Back then, it was mainly the purview of hospitals and university medical centers, which used the technology to communicate with each other, as well as doctors and specialists who collaborated on patient care.
Today, technological innovations and widespread Internet availability have transformed this area of medical care. Telemedicine now links patients with health care providers. Physicians can listen to a patient's concerns, review symptoms, conduct patient consultations and evaluations, and make treatment recommendations. Plus, telemedicine can still foster communication between physicians and health systems, serving as a quick and reliable way to share data, images, and other patient information.
There are different types of telemedicine, depending on the health care system offering the service. Some medical facilities may use it as an alternative to urgent care visits, while psychiatry offices can use telemedicine appointments to deliver mental health services. Telemedicine also differs from telehealth—while telemedicine is used for clinical care, telehealth can also be used for non-clinical applications such as training for health care professionals.
What Are the Benefits of Telemedicine?
We offer these virtual appointments because we believe there are many telemedicine benefits. Patients can seek care or have questions answered from the comfort of their homes, which makes health care more accessible. This is especially helpful if a patient is too weak to travel, or doesn’t want to sit in a doctor’s waiting room because they are ill. (It also prevents others in the office from getting sick.) Telemedicine services may reduce the consumer costs, such as transportation and parking. These services also come at a great convenience to the consumer with the ability to schedule an appointment on a work lunch break without worrying about traffic or missing precious family or leisure time. Overall, telemedicine appointments offer another health care choice for patients, and more choices can lead to improved delivery of services and greater patient satisfaction.
