Telehealth - why is it time and money saving?

Updated: Dec 26, 2019

In today’s digital world where most of our everyday lifestyle decisions from planning your vacations to calling a cab has transitioned to an online platform, healthcare is no different! New technologies are emerging and you can now consult any healthcare provider for their expert opinion about your aches or injuries and get a formal consultation instead of doing a google/webmd search of your symptoms.

Most people who suffer from aches and pains that are preventing them to lead a healthy, active lifestyle are doing so either due to lack of time in their busy lifestyle, due to financial concerns (high insurance copays or deductibles) or inconvenience (geographic, parking hassles, schedule conflicts, babysitter issues, referrals request....the list could go on). And the perfect solution to all these problems is Telehealth.

Telehealth is use of HIPAA compliant electronic communication to connect with your healthcare provider. Using this technology, people can now connect with any provider of their choice with the click of a mouse or tap of a button and get the support they need to get started or head in the right direction. There is no need to leave the comforts of their home or office, drive through traffic and spend time in the waiting room to receive the quality service they deserve.

When research clearly supports the use of self management exercises and adoption of a healthy, active lifestyle to prevent chronic aches and pains in addition to its numerous other benefits, the only missing piece of the puzzle here is the correct guidance or health coaching by the right professional. And nothing beats that if people can access these services at their own time, convenience and a cost they can afford. So don’t wait, call or email us at HealthWatchers to consult with your physical therapist and take your first step towards an active, healthy lifestyle in 2018!
