Enabling safe, secure and highly effective, continuity of care for patients at any location during shelter-inplace restrictions.
TeleVisits are a safe and secure way for you to connect to your doctor remotely, via video and audio connection either on your smartphone or your computer (with audio and video capabilities).
This means that you can schedule your TeleVisit and meet with your doctor from the comfort of your own home or any location. GIA physicians are seeing strong adoption of TeleVisits among patients who require frequent office visits, prescription refills, non-urgent consultations and the like.
TeleVisits have been proven to be highly effective in ensuring effective continuity of care, as they reduce patient anxiety generated from long drive time and/or time away from work. Scheduling a TeleVisit also reduces wait times in general and prevents potential exposure to other ailments/contaminants often found in busy waiting rooms.
With advancements in technology, the way physicians deliver medical care is changing and improving. Telemedicine might not be traditional but it certainly offers its advantages to the patient.
So, what are the benefits of Telemedicine?
Using technology can be daunting at times but Doxy.me is as easy as clicking a link. Call your clinic and schedule an appointment with your doctor. He will send you a link via email or text (whichever is easiest for you). You click the link, enter your name, select check-in and you’re ready to go.
