Virtual care management is a part of telehealth. It describes remote, real-time, online visits that occur between healthcare providers and patients. Those visits may utilize Internet technology, including live video conferences, audio, and/or instant messaging. Types of virtual care include checking in after visits, talking about treatment plans, or discussing surgery options.
Virtual care is beneficial because Avery Telehealth helps make it available almost anytime something most family doctors and specialists cannot offer.
- Offers a smarter way for specialists at distant locations to monitor patients and planned procedures.
- A perfect idea for patients who only need a quick consultation or check-in.
- Proposes uninterrupted, efficient communication without having to deal with typical office waiting room delays caused by other patients.
- Some virtual care managers can diagnose, recommend treatment, prescribe medication, and offer a second opinion.
