What is Telehealth and How Does it Work?
Telehealth is a modern way of accessing medical care. It uses technology to connect health care providers and patients virtually instead of in person. Telehealth services may be provided through a video call, phone call, or other digital application such as email or text messaging. At this time, Caliper uses Zoom to connect with our patients who live in Maryland. Since Zoom gained popularity over the last few years, we find it adds to the convenience for patients, making it easier to access quality health care from anywhere.
Tips for Making the Most of Your Virtual Appointments with Caliper Wellness
To ensure you get the most out of your virtual visit, it's important to prepare ahead of time. First, make sure you know what type of appointment it is, including any pre-visit instructions (such as completing specific paperwork). Don't worry, we will send you the forms you need and have made it easy for you to complete the paperwork. If necessary, gather any relevant documents such as past lab results and a list of medications you are currently taking. Additionally, take some time to make a comprehensive list of questions and symptoms you would like to discuss with your Caliper Health Care provider. Finally, create a comfortable workspace separate from distractions that you can use for your virtual appointment. This will help make the experience more successful for both you and your provider.
