Things you need to know about Danphe Care Telemedicine
Technologies have shrunk the world in many ways. Health care coverage has reached the unreached population, even when COVID-19 has made lockdown and social distancing the new norm. Caring for patients remotely despite the absence of physical presence of both the health care provider and the patient is known as telemedicine. The term covers all teleconsultations through phones, chats, or videos. Of course, video conferencing would be the best of these options. With the use of modern technologies for health care, the question of maintaining patient privacy remains. While using telemedicine the providers and patients should always use HIPAA compliant devices or software. Due to COVID-19 limiting physical office visits, teleconsultations have increased rapidly. While it does look attractive to dial a phone as an easy solution, it is important to keep in mind the media or platform that you are reaching out to. Thus, it is always responsible to reach out to a dependable and trustworthy organization/ institute/ health care provider for better using the service advantageously. Telemedicine is definitely growing every day.

There are limitations to telemedicine, like procedures cannot be performed virtually, some examination requires office visits to better identify the severity, and not all the lab tests besides the basic blood draws can reach a patient's home. Despite these limitations, it saves several screening office visits and there are numerous medical conditions that can be managed through virtual consultations. The issues missed during office visits can also be addressed through calls. When in doubt, a consultation with a healthcare professional can provide people with more information about their health, telemedicine makes this accessible. People can live with the confidence of having a health care consultation only a call/click/text away. While without question telemedicine has been useful during COVID-19, the service is beneficial despite the pandemic. The advantages and use of telemedicine are only growing in this era. As important as it is to go to a competent health care professional for office visits, choosing a good platform for teleconsultations is equally important.
