A woman walks into a doctor’s office—or maybe she doesn’t. In the 21st century, seeing a doctor is as easy as logging into a website at a predetermined time and communicating one-on-one with a medical practitioner trained in telemedicine.
For many urgent cares, finding new ways to meet patients’ needs keeps them relevant and successful in a very dynamic industry. This entrepreneurial attitude is one of the hallmarks of the urgent care industry. With constant movement towards new ways of delivering care, many clinics are now considering incorporating telemedicine into their business.
Telemedicine isn’t really new, but it is more readily available to the general public than ever before. Once the domain of astronauts and patients with extraordinary needs, it’s becoming a more common—and convenient—way for patients to visit with their doctor.
