Thanksgiving has many folks thinking long and hard about what they are thankful for. Beyond the classics like health and happiness, sometimes we can forget to be thankful about the little things. Here at Carie™, we’re thankful for telehealth technology this holiday season, and think there are four good reasons that you should be too…
Telehealth Requires No Travel
When things go awry with someone in the family and a doctor is needed, instead of driving a distance to the doctor’s office only to find yourself at the back of a long line, the Carie™ telehealth platform matches you with a doctor instantly in the comfort of your own home. Whether you’re cooking or watching football with the family, telehealth services won’t interrupt the festivities and give you more time with your family.
Telehealth Reduces the Spread of Viruses
The holiday season is synonymous with flu season, and that means when you have to visit a doctor for a minor sickness, you are putting yourself at risk for exposure to more serious diseases. With telehealth services, seeing your doctor from home means staying out of reach from highly infectious doctor’s offices.
Telehealth Reduces Healthcare Costs
Carie’s telehealth services mean that doctors are able to treat a greater number of patients remotely and as more patients seek this remote care, the baseline cost for an appointment decreases. Without administrative costs and office fees, the cost for doctors to operate their practices decreases which in turn means reduced costs for patients. The money you are saving on your healthcare is definitely something to be thankful for.
Telehealth Provides You with a Network of Support
Much like how you shouldn’t be alone on Thanksgiving, you should not be alone in your healthcare journey. And with telehealth, you never have to be. When you need comprehensive, fast, and expert healthcare, telemedicine gives you the healthcare you deserve. A team of expert physicians is always at your fingertips ready to help you diagnose and treat any condition and walk you through your treatment options. Surrounding yourself with people that care is a blessing and something to be thankful for during the holiday season.
