How Telemedicine Is Reshaping Healthcare

COVID-19 UPDATES: Your health is too important to put on hold. Learn how CEC is keeping you healthy and safe during your visit. From virtual visits to smart precautions in our health centers, we are here for you to get the care you need, in a way that works for you SAFELY.

The COVID-19 pandemic has forced medical practices to quickly shift how they elicit their services. Now more than ever, practices are relying on telemedicine to help patients get the care they need. At Charles Evans Center we too have adopted this method to bring you as many benefits as possible. Telemedicine is reshaping the healthcare industry, and we’d like to shed light on this.

What Is Telemedicine? 

Telemedicine is a service that involves utilizing technology that allows patients to receive care remotely. With social distancing guidelines continuously in effect for the immediate future, telemedicine is the perfect workaround to adhere to them. This service originated in the 1950s while first using landlines to have appointments over the phone. With new advancements in technology, video visits are now available as well.

Benefits Of Telemedicine

No one should be surprised at how quickly telemedicine has changed the healthcare field. There were too many benefits this service can bring for it to be held down for much longer. Examples of these benefits include the following:

  • It allows patients to receive care without having to leave their homes.
  • Patients and staff members remain protected from contagions.
  • The average telemedicine visit is often cheaper than traditional appointments.
  • Multiple medical experts can help a patient at once without the need for back and forth communications.

The swell of traction in the telemedicine movement is most likely here to stay. This service offers too many benefits to both patients and practitioners to taper off once the pandemic comes to an end.
