What is telemedicine? Is it the same as telehealth? Can it support your health goals, and does it represent an improvement in your health care? We get it; there are plenty of questions about telemedicine.
At New Tampa Wellness Clinic, we stand proudly behind our telemedicine services because they allow us to provide better care with greater efficiency. Let’s look at how the system works and what you can expect.
The terms telemedicine and telehealth are often used interchangeably. While similar, they are each slightly different.
Therefore, telemedicine is a telehealth service. When you meet with our New Tampa Wellness Clinic staff to discuss your health goals, it’s a telemedicine session.
Video calls and conferencing have been around for decades. Still, it’s only recently, with the advent of smartphone technology, that reliable video calling has become accessible for everyone.
Today, voice and video calls are accessible from almost all contemporary smartphones. Privacy and security standards for medical information are in place to protect the exchange of medical information.
At New Tampa Wellness Clinic, we specialize in weight management, nutritional counseling, and overall wellness. A telemedicine appointment in support of these goals can happen anywhere you have a cell or WIFI signal and some privacy.
There’s no need to drive to our office to meet with us, whether you’re looking for prescription renewals or weight management follow-up. We can meet many of your needs during a convenient telemedicine session and determine if in-person follow-up is necessary.
With telemedicine, you save time. No need to come to our office for weight loss, wellness, or nutrition consultations.
Virtual appointments limit your interactions with others, reducing your risk of getting sick, especially during cold and flu season.
Weight loss is often challenging. There are plateaus and fluctuations that can make you lose confidence. The good news is that medically-assisted weight loss works. At New Tampa Wellness Clinic, we focus on supporting wellness therapies for weight loss through telemedicine. Some of the services we offer include:
We build and support your weight loss plan to support your weight loss goals, lifestyle, and dietary preferences.
A typical telemedicine session starts with a review of your progress with your practitioner, focusing on changes since your previous appointment. If necessary, we’ll request lab work, adjust medications, supplements, or dosages, and give you feedback and guidance as needed. We can answer any questions and suggest alternatives for therapies that aren’t achieving the expected results. Finally, we’ll review your goals and schedule a follow-up.
