What is Telemedicine?

Telemedicine is a term coined in the 1970s, which means “healing at a distance”. Telemedicine is the natural evolution of healthcare in the digital world.  Telemedicine is the ability to provide interactive healthcare utilizing modern technology and telecommunications. Basically, telemedicine allows patients to visit a licensed healthcare provider through live video using your computer or smart phone for immediate care.

Transforming Your Healthcare Experience

Telemedicine has brought a revolution in the healthcare industry as it is fostering better communications between patient’s healthcare providers to evaluate, diagnose and treat patients without an in-person visit. Now you can avoid long waiting periods at urgent care centers and skip the hassle of making appointments with primary care doctor as you get all the services at one place with Tela-NP.

You just need a computer with an internet connection or a smart phone to visit a licensed healthcare provider for immediate care.

Why Choose Telemedicine?

Convenience — Patients do not have to take time away from work for an appointment. There is also no travel time or associated expenses, such as paying for gas or child care. More people are working from home, shopping from home, and yes, even seeing the healthcare providers from home. Last year more than a million people traded the waiting room for the comfort of their own couch!

Increased Access – If you live in a rural area, you can obtain healthcare services easily. Install the mobile app and access healthcare from anywhere, at any time. How Can I be Diagnosed Without a Physical Examination? In many cases, a description of the symptoms and your medical history is enough to diagnose common ailments. With video technology, you can send photos or videos – for example if you need me to see a rash. If I think the issue needs physical examination, I will recommend seeing your own provider or going to the emergency room.

I needed to be seen quickly for an acute illness, and having a 2 month old at home made that almost impossible for me to get to my doctors or urgent care. This was an exceptional way to be seen by a health care professional quickly and thoroughly. I was able to be assessed, treated, and prescribed medication in less than 15 minutes without leaving my living room! I would recommend this health care service to everyone I know! Thank you Melissa for your care!

My husband needed to be seen right away but wasn’t feeling well enough to go to the office but thank goodness for Melissa he was able to connect with her through this easy and convenient service. She was able to talk to him about what was bothering him and after doing so, diagnosed him with a sinus infection and sent over a prescription electronically. I recommend this service to anyone and everyone. Thank you Melissa for taking care of Francis.

If most of you have a busy schedule like me, going to the doctor and waiting for hours is simply out of the question. I was emailed an easy 1..2..3.. step process to create an account and within minutes I received an email confirmation and was set up with an appointment! At the time of my appointment, which was only a few short minutes after registering, Melissa and I were connected face to face to chat! She called in the medicine I needed and I was set up with my pharmacy by the time our session was over. I work 6 days a week so, going to a doctors office and waiting for hours just to get a script for a prescription refill can be a little tough. She is an absolute genius and I HIGHLY recommend her TO ANYONE !
