Telemedicine Q & A

What is telemedicine?

Using internet technology and video conferencing platforms, telemedicine facilitates care between health care providers and their patients through remote health visits. Like an in-person visit, telemedicine appointments allow you to speak with your provider about any health concerns you might have.

With the world of telemedicine, physicians can provide much-needed services to their patients, wherever they may be. CareOne Internal Medicine and Primary Care understands you can’t always make it into the doctor’s office for a health visit. With their telemedicine appointments, you can still meet with your doctor through a video conferencing platform, so they can help assess your situation.

How does a telemedicine visit work?

Your telemedicine visit with the team at CareOne Internal Medicine and Primary Care is a simple and easy process. After you’ve confirmed your appointment, you’ll receive instructions beforehand to set up the necessary equipment and login information. At the time of your appointment, you’ll download and log into the designated video conferencing platform. Once your doctor has joined the video conference, you’ll begin your appointment.

As with a regular visit, be sure to have any relevant health information at the ready that your doctor might need, such as previous medical history, a log of symptoms and health concerns, and a list of any medications you’re taking. If you’re receiving maintenance care for a chronic condition, your provider will ask you questions about your progress and update treatment plans if necessary.

If you need any prescriptions refilled, your doctor can also send that over to your pharmacy at the end of your visit. Once your doctor has completed their assessment, they can send you off with a diagnosis and personalized treatment plan.
