DO YOU HATE WAITING ROOMS AND DOCTOR’S OFFICES?
They’re filled with sick people, chaos and germs. In fact, you may spend more than half of your visit sitting in a waiting room waiting to be called, then placed in an exam room to wait yet again (you get the point). If you hate waiting rooms, Telemedicine may be for you! Our virtual waiting room is your bedroom, office or car. You choose when and where to have your visit and no unnecessary waiting!
ARE YOU A GERM PHOBE?
Do you carry mini hand sanitizer bottles in your purse, car and desk drawers? Do you refuse to shake hands with people for fear of getting sick? If you have stock in Clorox wipes, Telemedicine may be for you! The only germs you’ll come in contact with during a telemedicine visit are you own. Currently, evidence suggests germs and other contagions are not transmissible via google fiber.
ARE YOU UNINSURED OR UNDERINSURED?
Healthcare costs can but a damper on anyone’s finances, especially if you have a high-deductible plan where you have to pay one hundred percent out of pocket until a certain amount is reached, typically on order of thousands of dollars. A typical trip to the urgent care for the insured costs about $250 dollars. Also, people who are un or underinsured often delay medical care in an effort to save money but often this delay in care leads to a worsening of their condition and even greater medical bills. A typical telemedicine visit is about $50 or less, meaning you save money on both your visit and the gas and time it would take you to drive to and from the doctor’s office. See my first Loginclinics blog for more information.
IS YOUR WORK AND SOCIAL CALENDAR JAMMED WITH COMMITMENTS?
Do you feel bad for the receptionist who offers you 5 different dates and times for you to see your doctor and none of them work for you? LoginClinics offers daytime, evening and weekend appointments so you don’t have to drive to a physical location. With telemedicine, you can squeeze a virtual house in call during your lunch break or on a Friday evening after work… and if you’re a current patient, text messaging is also an option!
DO THE ADJECTIVES ‘EASY’ AND ‘EFFICIENT’ EXCITE YOU?
If they do, then you should get excited about using Loginclinics’ telemedicine and teletherapy services. Telehealth services add time to your day and money to your wallet, giving you more time and money for things that are important to you.
ARE YOU RELATIVELY HEALTHY AND MOSTLY NEED HEALTHCARE FOR NON-URGENT ILLNESSES?
Is it rare for you to get sick? If so, you may feel like you don’t need a primary care doctor or even health insurance, but there is comfort in knowing you have access to an experienced and highly education medical provider for an affordable rate. LoginClinics provides personalized, direct and individualized medical care from wherever you are- work, home, car, or vacation! There’s peace of mind in knowing you are only a couple of clicks away from expert medical care and treatment!
ARE YOU TECHNO SAVVY?
Loginclinics uses telemedicine technology- virtual house calls using the zoom video application and HIPAA compliant text messaging application by MedTunnel to conduct a virtual visit and stay in constant contact with our clients. In addition, for our concierge patients we recommend TytoCare’s Tytohome device. This device has an FDA approved stethoscope, otoscope and tongue depressor for a detailed telemedicine exam.
DO YOU LIKE TO LEARN AND BE AN ACTIVE PARTICIPANT IN YOUR HEALTHCARE?
Traditional medical visits involve driving to a medical institution and then spending 30 minutes or more filling out papers and speaking with the nursing staff. Finally, you get your 15 minutes with your doctor and more often than not leave and forget about 50% of what was discussed or even a lack of understanding about your condition or healthcare plan. If you have a question after the fact, you must call and leave a message on the nurse line. If you’re lucky, you will receive a phone call back within 24 hours – but not from your doctor- from the nurse who can often only guess about what the doctor meant… and he or she will possibly have to ask the doctor and then call you back. Loginclinics prides ourself on our individualized and personalized care we offer our patients. Our providers continue to communicate with you even after your visit is over. We follow up with you to make sure that your recovery is going well and make sure all of your questions and concerns regarding your care are answered.
IS TELEMEDICINE FOR YOU?
If you answered “yes” to four or more of these questions they telemedicine could be for you! LoginClinics’ mission is to combat the rising cost of healthcare and inconvenience through virtual house calls to deliver cost-effective, easily accessible and high-quality direct healthcare. If you’re never tried telemedince and are concerned about how it would look, we’d be happy to discuss it with you via email, phone or text.
