The Rising Popularity Of Telemedicine

Telehealth and telemedicine are slightly different things, but both are helping to keep access to medical care flowing during the pandemic. Many patients are at high risk for complications and death if they contract the novel coronavirus, and going to a place where it’s highly likely someone else was there because of COVID-19 is not worth the risk. This has meant that people are choosing not to seek medical care even during times of emergency, but thanks to telemedicine that is just not necessary.

Telemedicine is when a patient sees a medical provider through remote means, while telehealth includes telemedicine and also other things like remote patient education, physician reviews and medical meetings, and monitoring patients remotely through diagnostic equipment.

Telemedicine has never been more popular, and now that so many people have had the opportunity to use it, it is unlikely they will be willing to give it up after the pandemic is over. Learn more about telehealth and telemedicine from the infographic below.
