If you’ve ever skipped or delayed medical care because you weren’t able to leave your home or busy schedule, look no further than telemedicine.
Telehealth services have boomed in popularity since 2020. And while the COVID-19 pandemic has played a role in that popularity, many people are embracing it for good.
Our expert team at Northland Orthopedics & Sports Medicine in Kansas City, Missouri, is pleased to offer virtual visits to help you meet your medical needs from home.
Take a few moments to learn more about telemedicine, including ways it might benefit you.
Telemedicine allows you to connect with your medical providers remotely, often from the comfort of your own home.
You schedule an appointment using our online form. Once your appointment arrives, you talk to your provider through a device, such as your phone, laptop, or tablet. Some telemedicine options require apps, which tend to be simple to download and use.
Health services you can get through a virtual appointment include:
All you need is a good internet or phone connection and a private space to speak freely.
One of the biggest benefits of telemedicine is convenience. Rather than needing to carve out time to drive to our office, you can simply tuck yourself into a private space at home minutes before your appointment begins.
Additional benefits of televisits include:
Televisits also allow your provider to see your home environment, when cameras are used. And they may notice things around you that need addressing, which can be helpful for occupational therapy.
To get started with your first telemedicine experience, simply complete our virtual visit scheduling form. From there, someone from our office will call you within one business day to confirm a date and time for your appointment. At that time, you can also ask any questions you may have.
