We are happy to announce that our podiatrists have started doing telemedicine / telehealth video phone calls for those patients that cannot leave their home or are out of state / country, or need urgent care.

Telemedicine overcomes the barriers to podiatry services caused by distance between patient and our podiatrists, access to reliable transportation, or the patient’s busy life.

Telemedicine increases access to care when distance and travel time between patients and care providers can limit access to care. Fortunately, telemedicine can overcome geographic barriers to podiatric care, especially for specialty like podiatry. Telemedicine can be particularly beneficial for patients in medically underserved states and countries.

Telemedicine improves quality of care delivery. In fact, a recent study showed that in caused
– 38% fewer hospital admissions
– 31% fewer hospital re-admissions
– 63% more likely to spend fewer days in the hospital
– Were more engaged in their healthcare

Telemedicine reduces healthcare costs and can increase efficiency of care delivery, reduce expenses of caring for patients or transporting to another location, and can even keep patients out of the hospital. One study showed that telemedicine care had 19 percent savings over inpatient care cost.

Telemedicine enhances traditional face-to-face medicine
A strong doctor-patient relationship is the foundation for high-quality patient care and reducing health care costs. Telemedicine should support, NOT REPLACE, traditional care delivery. With telemedicine, our podiatrists can continue to care for patients in-person care while still providing the flexibility and convenience of seeing patients remotely for follow up visits, check-ups, and education when appropriate or necessary.

Telemedicine improves patient engagement and satisfaction
Telemedicine makes it easier and more convenient for patients to stay healthy and engaged in their health care. Patients love the convenience, flexibility and real-time care with their podiatrist.
