How do you really know when telemedicine will be helpful
for a health concern?
Sometimes an injury or illness requires in-person care from a medical provider and cannot be treated through telemedicine (think about getting a cast on a broken limb). But there are many conditions that do benefit from telemedicine. Sometimes whether or not a case can be treated through telemedicine is not as evident as a fractured arm. Thanks to our assessment methods, we know who will get the most out of telemedicine.
Medcor’s systems and technology make patient-specific recommendations for telemedicine using evidence-based medicine.
This means that when Medcor makes a referral to telemedicine, we have identified telemedicine as an appropriate care option for an individual patient; we do not make referrals to telemedicine based on broad categories that could have patients going to telemedicine needlessly. Medcor Telemed referrals are made from Medcor triage services, onsite clinics and mobile units.
