Telemedicine / Virtual Care FAQ
What is telemedicine?
Telemedicine uses modern technology, such as smartphones, computers, or tablets to connect with your physician at Infectious Disease Center of New Jersey and exchange health information. It provides a convenient way to meet with them for routine visits or follow-ups rather than traveling to the office in person. If you develop a fever or sore throat, and it doesn’t improve with at-home care, telemedicine appointments offer the opportunity to receive prompt medical guidance so you can recover and feel better faster.
What services does telemedicine include?
With access to a secure telemedicine platform, the Infectious Disease Center of New Jersey uses telemedicine to support you and your loved ones through:
Telemedicine allows your physician to offer prompt guidance for your condition. Whether you’re feeling unwell or injured, your practitioner can quickly determine the type of care you’ll need during your telemedicine visit.
Remote monitoring is an important part of telemedicine that helps your physician keep track of your condition. You may have home devices, such as blood glucose meters and blood pressure monitors, that can send medical information to your practitioner to effectively treat health issues and prevent further problems.
With this vital information, your practitioner can make adjustments to your health care plan that benefit you. They can also adjust medication use or schedule follow-ups to monitor your condition.
Follow-up visits are scheduled check-ins with your practitioner. They track your progress after lab testing or trying a new treatment.
Telemedicine visits also allow your physician to quickly order medication refills rather than scheduling an in-office appointment.
What are the benefits of telemedicine?
Telemedicine offers many advantages that can complement or supplement in-office visits.
When you have a child or take care of an elderly family member, arranging childcare or finding another caregiver to step in may not always be convenient. With telemedicine, you don’t have to worry or stress about making those arrangements.
If you have a health condition that requires hospitalization, telemedicine services and remote monitoring devices may help shorten your inpatient stay.
Telemedicine also saves you time from having to take a day off from work or sit in traffic. Infectious Disease Center of New Jersey offers flexible telemedicine visits, so you can schedule an appointment during a time that’s best for you or your loved one.
If you have immunocompromised health, telemedicine helps reduce your potential risk of exposure to other people’s illnesses.
