Telemedicine Q & A

What is telemedicine?

Telemedicine is a type of health care you can receive remotely. You communicate with your health care provider through online technology like computers, tablets, and smartphones, rather than traveling to a physical office. 

The team at Zalwango Health and Wellness Concierge, PC, proudly provides telemedicine services for acute illnesses, chronic diseases, and preventive care.


What does telemedicine include?

With access to advanced technology, the team uses telemedicine to support patients through:


Remote monitoring

Remote monitoring is a critical part of telemedicine that allows your provider to track your condition from another location. Many devices, such as blood glucose meters, weight scales, and blood pressure monitors can send vital information to your primary care practitioner. 

With this information, your provider can adjust your health care plan, change medications, or schedule additional check-ins to monitor your condition.


Urgent consultations

Fast, responsive urgent care appointments allow your provider to offer immediate guidance for your condition. If you’re injured or feeling unwell, the team may determine whether you need additional care during your telemedicine visit.


Follow-up visits

Follow-up visits are check-ins with your provider after a previous appointment. Your provider can track your progress after trying a new treatment, perform further testing, or adjust your medications at these visits. 


Medication refills

The team can order medication refills during your telemedicine visit rather than scheduling an in-office appointment.

At Zalwango Health and Wellness Concierge, PC, the team provides telemedicine services only for adult patients without severe health complications.


What are the benefits of telemedicine?

Telemedicine has many advantages that can supplement routine in-office visits. With a concierge medicine practice, the team uses state-of-the-art technology and mobile equipment to ensure their patients receive quality care remotely.

Popular benefits of telemedicine include:

  • Fewer hospitalizations and urgent care visits
  • Reduced risk of infections and illnesses from populated medical facilities
  • Improved chronic disease management and ongoing health care
  • Lower costs for patients without access to transportation or childcare

If you have a condition that requires hospitalization, remote monitoring devices and telemedicine services can shorten your inpatient stay.
