Advantages of telemedicine

While physical exams and blood tests require an in-person visit, there are many services you can access using telemedicine, and it offers distinct advantages. The following are some of the major benefits of using telemedicine.

Improves access to care

Attending in-person appointments often involves contending with travel, arranging child care, and making changes to your schedule to fit in your appointment. Depending on your proximity, travel may present a barrier. Or, you may have a busy schedule and find it challenging to find an allotment of time to attend your appointment.

Weight management requires dedication and consistency. Weekly check-ins enable us to track your progress and make tweaks when appropriate and gives you the opportunity to let us know how things are going. The ability to schedule weekly check-ins using telemedicine can be invaluable when you’re on a weight-loss journey.

Provides care at your fingertips

It’s easier to keep up with follow-up appointments when it’s convenient to do so. Telemedicine gives you easy, convenient access from the comfort and privacy of wherever you choose, be it your home, office, or elsewhere. Quickly send and receive documents, attend counseling and follow-up appointments, and get the care you need at your fingertips.

Helps you remain safe

Safety is a top priority during this time with COVID-19. The ability to continue accessing high-quality weight-management care, while social distancing and remaining in the safety of your home, is a welcome relief for many patients.

Fits your life and schedule

Accessing care without having to travel, take off work, or arrange childcare enhances patient satisfaction. Knowing that you have the option to schedule a telemedicine appointment in the event that you’re unable to travel or have a tight schedule may put you at ease.

YOURx Health has enhanced its use of telemedicine to optimize patient care. While in-person visits remain an integral part of your overall care, telemedicine makes it easier and more convenient than ever to stay connected to our weight-management experts.
