Ever since the COVID-19 was discovered in the world, it has become increasingly difficult to go about living our normal lives. Everything that we once knew is completely different because of the overwhelming spread of this virus. Although the government has taken precautions to prevent the spread of the virus, it does not mean that it is fully gone. It is important that we continue to stay safe and be vigilant when we do have to venture outside in the public for appointments, grocery visits and so on. If you have been feeling ill then rather than going to a doctor in person, we recommend using TeleMed along with Trusted Choice to ensure that your safety and the safety of others is not compromised.
What is TeleMed?
TeleMed offers you a way to speak to a healthcare provider about your medical issues, symptoms, the length that you have had these symptoms and so on. The best thing about TeleMed is that you do not have to leave your home to speak to them because you are able to speak to them on the phone or through the My TeleMed Medical Messaging app. Although it is not recommended to use these services for emergency situations that require hands-on care like if you or someone else is having a stroke, heart attack, have a severe laceration, cut, broken bones or require an x-ray, splints or a cast, it is helpful when you need to follow-up with a doctor or have an infection, need medication, stomach illness, rash, pink eye and so on.
Why Use it?
One of the most important reasons to use TeleMed is because it allows you to still receive the care that you need from a doctor without having to go to the doctor. For example, if you are unable to drive to the appointment or it is during a pandemic like the COVID-19 then it is always better to call and receive a diagnosis through the phone or by messaging the healthcare provider on the app. In addition to receiving accessible healthcare despite being busy, living in a remote place, not having transportation or to avoid becoming worse, you will also reduce the amount of money you spend on receiving care. For example, by contacting TeleMed, they can determine whether you need to visit an emergency room.
Trusted Choice and TeleMed
When you are receiving home care then it is always important that you and your caregiver feel safe, especially in times like these. Using TeleMed along with the home care services from Trusted Care is vital because it can help you prevent a severe illness from being spread to you and your caregiver since you can easily contact TeleMed and tell them your symptoms without having to go to a doctor in-person. For example, right now the world has been dealing with the COVID-19 pandemic and this has forced a lot of places in the world to shut down because of the spread of the virus. Your caregiver always needs to be protected because they not only care for you, but they probably have family to care for as well. If they were to become sick, then they could potentially spread the virus to you and whoever else they come into contact with when they are out and about, returning from caring from you and so on.
Using TeleMed will be extremely useful for caregivers. When you are a caregiver, it means that you are in charge of caring for someone else’s well-being. This can be a lot of work and if they are feeling sick, you do not want to have to rush them to a doctor’s office or a hospital just to have your client waiting hours to be seen. To cut down wait times and reduce medical bill costs, TeleMed offers a convenient way in contacting them to reduce that wait time for you and the person you are caring for.
