What is AFC Urgent Care telecare/a virtual visit, then?
With telecare, a patient can get a similar level of care to regular care from a doctor, but from home over the phone or internet! When a patient gets care over the internet in a video conference, this is a virtual visit. Thanks to telecare, a patient will be able to ask a doctor any questions remotely and receive remote diagnosis and remote treatment.
Telecare is about remote healthcare for common, minor illnesses, infections, and injuries, as well as symptoms like flu symptoms. Doctors can provide basic, visual physical exams too. Whenever there’s a risk of exposing yourself, your family, or other people to an illness, like a virus, telecare is necessary. It may be necessary in other situations too.
Is telecare different from telehealth?
Yes, these two things are somewhat different, but both terms can describe the same kind of healthcare: remote healthcare for common, minor health conditions/symptoms. The terms telecare, telehealth, telemedicine, and virtual visit can describe this healthcare.
What can telecare treat?
Minor health conditions and symptoms can be treated via telecare. For example, flu symptoms or minor sports injuries can be addressed. With flu-like symptoms, a telecare doctor can determine whether they should be addressed or not, and if so, the doctor will recommend either in-person or curbside testing or another service like, say, a prescription for a medication. Via telecare, a patient can get diagnosed, be referred for treatment, receive a checkup, or ask for family wellness advice, all digitally! Because it’s so very convenient, telecare is liked by so many patients, and it’s also liked because it’s very affordable.
How expensive is telecare?
It’s quite affordable for most patients and generally more affordable than regular doctor’s visits. You’ll find this is the case with AFC Urgent Care Powdersville. You’ll also find that we accept most major insurances, including Medicare and Medicaid, and we offer discounted cash-pay options for those patients without insurance.
