Telemedicine is the use of information and communication technologies to provide health care services remotely.
Telemedicine can involve different modes of interaction such as live video conferencing, remote patient monitoring, and mobile health. Telemedicine has many applications which may include diagnosis and treatment of common conditions, medication management, and specialist referrals.
At MedWise, you can use telemedicine services to address and treat minor medical conditions that do not require lab work, radiology testing, or an in-person physical examination to diagnose or treat.
At MedWise Urgent Care, telemedicine services provide easy access to healthcare professionals for wellness and minor medical needs.
Sore throat, some rashes, seasonal allergy symptoms, URIs and conditions that do not require laboratory or radiology testing to diagnose are more likely to be appropriate for telemedicine services.
