Today, many of us keep in touch with family and friends using Video Calls. Video consultations allows you to have secure two way video calls with patients just like Skype, FaceTime or WhatsApp allows you to connect with family and friends.
Offering video appointments extend timely, convenient, affordable and high-quality healthcare to such patients where a physical examination is not required. Video consultations allow you to see patients online at your convenience. Think of Video calls like virtual home visits. Patients like the convenience video visits provide since they can talk with you from the comfort of home or work using their smartphone or tablet.
Healthcare providers can conduct scheduled video consultations with their patients who are receiving ongoing care. Healthcare providers can also conduct on-demand unplanned video consultations to help triage and reduce avoidable visits for face to face consultations.
The on-demand video consultations can be used by after hours and urgent care or emergency departments to triage and reduce avoidable visits.
