What is an example of telehealth?
First of all, there is an important distinction to make between telehealth and telemedicine. Telehealth involves patient education resources, the ability to monitor your vital signs remotely via ECG or blood pressure monitors, while telemedicine involves virtual patient consultations with a doctor.
For example, if need support for diabetes management, telehealth could provide you with online food or medication logs, blood sugar levels, and insulin doses, which a nurse will review and respond to electronically. You can also receive educational videos regarding food intake and tips for managing symptoms or apps that let you know how much insulin you require based on your diet and exercise routines. At Dr. Shima Hadidchi, we can refer you to various resources by which you can accomplish all of the above. We will also schedule virtual appointments with you if you have any questions or concerns, require prescription refills, or if you require a referral or doctor’s note. For virtual visits with your doctor, it is essential to be as descriptive as possible your symptoms since your doctor provide palpation, that is, hands-on care.
