Even before the rise of the COVID-19 pandemic, telemedicine was gaining popularity in the United States. Offering telemedicine benefits as part of your employee healthcare plan has numerous perks that everyone can benefit from.
What is Telemedicine?
Telemedicine is a practice that involves visiting and consulting with a healthcare provider remotely, via phone call or HIPAA-compliant video conferencing platform. While not practical for more serious health concerns, telemedicine is typically used for conditions that don’t require hands-on care, such as the flu, a fever, mental health visits and preventative health services. Patients can discuss their symptoms in the comfort of their home with their provider, who can prescribe medication, recommend treatment, or, in some cases, recommend an in-person visit for further examination.
With many states recommending individuals continue to stay at home as much as possible, telemedicine is more important than ever.
