So what is AFC Urgent Care telecare/virtual visit?
Telecare is like regular healthcare from a doctor, but from home! This can be done either over the phone or over the internet. If it’s done over the internet and in a videoconference, this is a virtual visit. In telecare, you’ll be able to ask the doctor any questions you have and receive remote diagnosis and treatment. This is also known as telemedicine.
Telecare is all about remote healthcare to address mild illnesses, minor injuries, and common symptoms like common cold symptoms. It’s even possible for a doctor to provide a basic, visual physical exam. Sometimes telecare is necessary, like when there’s a risk of exposing yourself or other people to an illness.
Is there a difference between telecare and telehealth?
The two are somewhat different, but both terms can be used to describe the same kind of healthcare: remote healthcare for the treatment of common, minor health conditions and symptoms. Any of the terms telecare, telehealth, telemedicine, or virtual visit can describe this kind of healthcare.
What can be treated with telecare?
This kind of healthcare can address minor health conditions and minor symptoms, like cold symptoms or simple injuries. For cold and flu-like symptoms in particular, a telecare doctor will be able to determine whether the symptoms are any cause for concern. If the doctor decides the issue should be addressed, he or she will recommend either in-person or at-curbside testing or another service like a prescription for medicine. With telecare, a patient can receive diagnosis, treatment, a checkup, and family health advice digitally! This level of convenience is very nice, but there are other benefits of telecare.
