With the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, telemedicine is proving to be an increasingly valuable tool for employers to have as part of their health benefits plan.
Virtual doctor’s visits make it easier for doctors and patients to connect. Patients are more likely to seek care at the first signs of illness when a visit is as simple as scheduling a video chat at a convenient time. In turn, this can better their chances for a complete and speedy recovery.
In addition, trying to take time off from work for a doctor’s appointment can be challenging, not to mention inconvenient. And for those who live in remote areas with limited access to medical treatment, the trip to an in-office medical appointment can be even more challenging.
So, how does it work?
