What Is Telemedicine?

telemedicine

Telemedicine is the process of offering care to patients through modern technology when the doctor and patient are not physically together. It is a new concept that is developing rapidly, thanks to the availability and affordability of basic telemedicine tools. Green Dermatology and Cosmetic Center is now proud to offer Telemedicine to our patients.

People often use telemedicine and telehealth interchangeably. While both terms encompass similar services, telemedicine is actually a subset of the broader term telehealth which includes all medical services provided through modern telecommunication tools.
 

What are the Benefits of Telemedicine?

Telemedicine makes it easier and more convenient for patients to seek help from their doctors, stay healthy and keep up with regular exams and overall health in their health. Patients generally recommend telemedicine for its flexibility and real-time attention. 

Telemedicine is also extremely beneficial in situations where patients do not have the luxury of routinely visiting the doctor's office.

Additional benefits of telemedicine include:

  • Eliminate transportation time and costs

  • No need to take time off of work 

  • Remove the stress of child or elder care 

  • No Time Waiting Room


Convenience and accessibility are the driving forces behind this field of health care and telemedicine makes health care delivery easier for both patients and health care providers as it breaks down geographical barriers to health care access.
