Doctors are making house calls again. But this time, instead of knocking on your door, they’re communicating through real-time video and file keeping interfaces. Telemedicine isn’t a new concept, but with the rise of COVID-19, there have been a record number of physicians incorporating telemedicine. The telemedicine industry has grown to be a robust $79 billion market in the last year, a price tag expected to increase to $396 billion by 2027! Telemedicine is here to stay and all the better. Patients and physicians report faster, more productive appointments, less frustration in managing healthcare, and decreased cost. How can you make your first telemedicine appointment?

What Can Telemedicine Treat?
Broadly speaking, telemedicine is for routine visits, checks, prescription refills, follow-ups, or anything else your physician deems applicable of that nature. Telemedicine is essential for when seeing specialists in rural areas. Patients who would normally have to travel or take time off work to see an allergist, for instance, can now take care of their healthcare needs by tapping a button instead of taking a drive.
