Benefits of Virtual Care
The internet and portable technology have transformed our lives, giving us access to information and services we never had before. Now it’s time to add healthcare to that list.
Telehealth (or telemedicine) enables video and phone appointments between patients and their healthcare providers from anywhere with a WiFi signal. Today, more patients “see” their doctors by using their computers, smartphones, and tablets than ever before.
While patients are always welcome at MD Now’s state-of-the-art urgent care clinics, we now offer virtual visits for those who want to take advantage of this flexible option. Let’s explore the many benefits of telehealth and how virtual visits with MD Now can greatly improve your healthcare experience.
Comfort and Convenience
It doesn’t get any more convenient than home—or your car, or your workplace or wherever else you may be. Telehealth can have a tremendous impact on your healthcare journey, particularly when you want to speak with a doctor on your terms.
Perhaps you’re struggling to fit a doctor’s visit into your busy schedule, unable to arrange for child care or simply don’t feel like getting out of your pajamas. Whatever the reason, telehealth is often an ideal solution.
With virtual visits, the physician-led team of healthcare professionals at MD Now can help you get back to better from just about anywhere—including your own bed or sofa. All you have to do is check in online, and we’ll determine if we can see you virtually or if you need to visit your nearest MD Now clinic.
For patients who can be seen virtually and do not require an in-person visit, telehealth can save an enormous amount of time. With 110+ locations across Florida, MD Now is within easy reach of many cities and communities. However, telehealth eliminates the need to drive back and forth to an appointment.
Instead of requesting time off from work or worrying about school bus schedules, you can schedule a virtual visit when it’s best for you. Virtual visits are less time-consuming for both patient and doctor—a win-win for everyone.
No lines. No waiting rooms. Just the care you need, when you need it.
Seamless Continuity of Care
Patients have become more open to seeking medical care now that it is more readily available online—and that’s a good thing.
Telehealth provides seamless communication between patient and doctor, even when life gets hectic or in-person visits are not available (telehealth was essential for many during the COVID-19 pandemic). Instead of letting your health fall by the wayside, telehealth helps you stay in contact with your provider so you can get any required follow-up care.
Less Germ Spreading
Telehealth also helps prevent the spread of COVID-19, the flu, strep throat, RSV, and other infectious diseases by prescreening patients before they come for an in-person visit.
Less germ exposure is good for everyone, especially those with chronic health conditions or compromised immune systems. Young children, the elderly and pregnant women are also at greater risk.
Think you might be contagious? Help control the spread of germs by scheduling a virtual visit first.
