Technology

Telemedicine

The ever increasing popularity and convenience of telemedicine has no doubt played an important part in the healthcare industry. People weren’t sure how it will all turn out but in the end, considering the popularity has gained over the years, it’ll be safe to assume that telemedicine is living up to its potential. However it’s not the ultimate solution that we thought the future would bring.

Telemedicine, as the name implies, is bound by the restraints of physical objects and specific locations. The main issue with telemedicine is that it is limited in scope – only a handful of issues can be addressed whereas virtual primary care can address over 1000 diagnoses and offer a host of advantages over telemedicine.

Virtual Primary Care

Virtual primary care is above these technological restrictions and is the future of telemedicine. It is a logical way of care and is device-agnostic. See the complete list of advantages of Virtual Primary Care.

Service

Telemedicine

You want to avail the convenience of telemedicine but in the end, you don’t get the service you paid for. The phone or video conversations are with a random and different doctor each time which can significantly decrease the patient’s satisfaction level.  This has limited the scope of telemedicine since one is not able to be prescribed tests, labs, etc. that require follow up.

Virtual Primary Care

Once you are connected with a doctor through the virtual primary care service, you can opt to consult the same doctor again. This simple choice is enough to make you feel comfortable and the next time you experience some gastric problems you wouldn’t have to go through your whole medical history over and over again. Additionally, virtual primary care includes the delivery of preventive, promotive and curative care. Needless to say, the vast scope of the services provided by virtual primary care has made it the preferred mode of care.

Ongoing Care

Telemedicine

No matter if people consider telemedicine as technologically advanced, if it can’t provide ongoing care to its patients, what’s the use of all the integrated system? If you’ve availed telemedicine services during an illness, your doctors won’t follow up on your condition.

Virtual Primary Care

This model however, provides an integrated system, which means that you can consult the same doctor who initially diagnosed you. Throughout your illness, your doctor takes follow up from time to time. This keeps them, up-to-date on your condition and provides them with all the tools to continue your treatment effectively. Essentially, you get a concierge primary care doctor 24x7 with ZendyHealth’s Virtual Primary Care offering.

 

These are the basic differences that set these two clinical healthcare systems apart. Although both of them are a combination of telecommunication and information technology, there’s a vast difference in the service offerings. There’s a good chance that within a few years, with the invention of more advanced technology, virtual primary care will revolutionize the healthcare industry. Remote access has already affect lives of many people around the world and sit will continue to do so.
