Over the last three years, we have seen an increase in virtual communication and the ability to do just about anything from the comfort of your house. With work from home, family zooms, and the capability to get whatever you need, delivered directly to you, why should your medical services be any different? Care2U is a mobile medical practice that provides healthcare directly to your home, on-demand, to make your medical appointments easy and convenient. 

How Does Care2U Work?

Care2U works in two different ways for people. With in-home high acuity care or in-home hospitalization care, our mobile team of certified care specialists and registered nurses will visit your home to provide the same care you receive at a traditional doctor’s office. They can treat non-life-threatening medical conditions from illness to injury to wound care. You can also receive IV fluids and antibiotics as well as X-rays, an ultrasound, EKGs, and echo testing in your home. The other way Care2U can make your life easier is via telehealth appointments.

What is Telehealth?

Telehealth is defined as the delivery and facilitation of health and health-related services, including medical care, provider and patient education, health information services, and self-care via telecommunications and digital communication technologies. Basically, this just means visiting with a physician on an audio or video call from your computer, tablet, or phone. This allows you to quickly be diagnosed and treated virtually. 

 

Benefits of Telehealth

With technology, physicians can treat a wide range of symptoms, illnesses, and injuries. Most symptoms treated at an in-person office can be treated via telehealth. But there are a lot of additional benefits to receiving virtual care.

Comfort

The most apparent benefit of a telehealth appointment is the comfort of receiving care from your home. When you are sick or injured, leaving the house can be very difficult and make symptoms worse. Continuing to rest in bed while you jump on a quick video call is not only more comfortable for you, but can also prevent you from feeling worse.

Convenience

Even if you feel healthy enough to go outside and travel to the doctor’s office, it can still be a pain. Between the cost of gas driving across town, to the long wait sitting in an uncomfortable waiting room, avoiding the entire process and inconvenience of visiting the doctor with telehealth. Schedule your appointment and receive a same-day appointment window so you can go about your day as usual and receive a call when the physician is ready to speak with you. 

Safety

Since the start of the pandemic, we have seen an increase in concern about visiting hospitals and doctor’s offices. For patients with minor illnesses or in need of a routine check-up, the fear of being exposed to a more severe illness has caused people to neglect the care and treatment they need. With telehealth, you receive medical care from the safety and privacy of your own home.

Peace of Mind

We have all done that thing where we experience a minor symptom like a headache or stomach ache and make the mistake of turning to google, which tells us we might have cancer. If you are worried, schedule a quick telehealth call to speak with a professional and give yourself some peace of mind without wasting your whole day and going through the entire process of visiting an urgent care center. Telehealth services are there for you whenever you need them.
