Are Virtual Doctor’s Appointments On The Rise?
The COVID-19 pandemic continues to have a significant impact on our society as a whole. As experts encourage us to limit viral spread, there is a considerable emphasis on “social distancing.”
What does social distancing do? By reducing the amount of contact we have with other people, we limit the chance of catching a disease. These precautions are necessary because not all individuals experience the symptoms of a disease. If they don’t exhibit any problems, they do not know that their mere presence is putting other people at risk.
Since no one has the resources to test everyone, the solution is that we limit unnecessary contact with others for the time being. While the ideal scenario would involve everyone just staying home for a bit, this isn’t practical.
The world can’t merely stop – things need to go on for society to function. While they still need to stay active, many essential businesses, like Regional Medical Group, are finding ways to adapt to the current situation.
For one, Regional Medical Group is taking advantage of the stay at home order and introducing innovative ways, like telemedicine, a personal injury virtual webinar, and now a podcast, for their patients and partners to connect with them all from the comfort of their home.
How Are Medical Professionals Reacting?
Just because COVID-19 is floating around doesn’t mean that your back pain, whiplash, or herniated disc just goes away. While you should try to limit yourself from going out to social events or meeting with large groups of friends, you shouldn’t neglect your other medical needs.
Depending on your condition, driving to your local chiropractor may not be the best option. That doesn’t mean you should give up and forgo pain management altogether.
But what if you didn’t have to go to the doctor to receive a medical consultation physically? Believe it or not, this was always an option – even before the COVID-19 pandemic!
Telemedicine is a broad term that refers to remote medical advice.
Nowadays, telemedicine usually involves a video call with a licensed doctor – all from the comfort of your home. By taking advantage of technological advancements and popular gadgets, this portal offers an excellent solution for getting reliable medical consultations without breaking social distancing measures.
Virtual doctor visits are practical. Think of how many times you drove all the way to your clinic just to be in and out of an appointment after a couple of minutes.
Many times, these quick assessments could have been done over the phone in the first place – saving effort on both ends. Of course, these are not the “perfect” substitution for doctor’s appointments, but there is always the option to come into the clinic in person if the physician believes it’s an emergency.

Is Telemedicine Here To Stay?
While the COVID-19 pandemic may have been one of the more prominent factors bringing attention to telemedicine, many expect that the portals are here to stay. Telemedicine offers an incredibly convenient service that both patients and doctors can benefit from – no matter the current situation.
We should just consider telemedicine a step towards the future. Technology has given us the ability to optimize are medical institutions, and we shouldn’t ignore it. Remember, telemedicine is not a replacement for traditional doctors. It is merely a tool to help innovate a very strained industry.
No one expects the transition to be easy for everyone, and we will be there to help you every step of the way. If you need help getting into contact with accident doctors, we at Regional Medical Group are here to help you every step of the way.
