Telemedicine Paves the Way for Healthcare’s Future

Telemedicine (also known as telehealth) soared to popularity during the COVID-19 pandemic, and this option for patients and providers continues to stay in demand. Telemedicine is an option to manage your health care with a provider through the use of digital communication.

Telemedicine is offered in three ways:

  • Synchronous—this is when the doctor communicates with the patient with real-time video or audio via a smartphone or other device

  • Asynchronous—this is when the doctor later sees a patient’s medical images or other data, and the doctor and patient can send secure messages to each other

  • Remote patient monitoring—when a patient’s measurements, such as blood pressure, are sent to the provider for analysis
