Probably not many of you know about telemedicine. This is the use of telecommunication and information technology to provide health care at a distance. I admit to not being an expert when it comes to this but from what I know, I would safely say that it’s an innovation that’s badly needed and would make a lot of difference in our busy everyday lives. It removes distance barriers and helps even people in remote rural areas have easy access to medical services.
American Well (Amwell) is the nation’s largest telehealth company, connecting live board-certified healthcare professionals like doctors, psychologists, and dieticians immediately with patients through video over web or mobile devices. You’ll get 24/7 service from their knowledgeable and dedicated doctors even from the comforts of your home, and mind you, even without an appointment.
Some of the health concerns encountered by doctors are bronchitis, cough, sore throat, urinary tract infection, diarrhea, fever, flu, sprains and strains, depression, weight concerns, and smoking cessation. This saves patients some money, time, and effort. You no longer have to brave traffic and wait long hours in the emergency room. Choose the type of visit you’re looking for and the provider. The doctor will then diagnose, suggest follow up, and prescribe accordingly.
How it works:
— Creating an account is easy, and only takes a minute. Once your account is created, your information is stored safely and securely for all future online visits.
— Amwell believes in choice. That’s why they show you the doctors available in your state, and let you review their backgrounds and ratings so you can decide who to see. Doctors are board certified, with an average of 10-15 years in practice.
— Over the web or using one of the mobile apps, you can see and speak with a doctor over live, high-quality video.
There are several reasons why clients patronize Amwell. An online visit only costs $49, something that budget-conscious patients will definitely be happy about. It’s easily accessible, all you need are the required gadgets and a reliable internet connection. It’s also convenient since patients no longer have to make appointments or wait to be seen. The doctor can be seen from the comfort and convenience of their own home.
Furthermore, it only takes about 10 minutes to talk to a doctor in most cases, in which they can review your history, answer questions, diagnose, treat and even prescribe medicines that they send straight to your pharmacy. Lastly, there’s peace of mind because clients can get second opinion directly from the doctors and avoid self-diagnosing.
Amwell is on its way up and is positioning itself to be the Amazon of health care according to an article in the Wall Street Journal. Get to experience Amwell and have a $1 visit just by using the coupon code HEALTHY40. Hurry and experience the convenience and ease of Amwell.
