Telemedicine Q & A

What is telemedicine?

Telemedicine is medical care that you receive online, through live video conferencing. Raritan Family Healthcare understands that getting the medical care you need isn't always easy, so they offer telemedicine to give you the ultimate in easy-access health care. 

What services can I receive through telemedicine?

Raritan Family Healthcare offers a number of services through telemedicine, such as help with:

  • Cough
  • Colds
  • Flu
  • Nasal congestion and runny nose
  • Rashes
  • Stings
  • Headaches 
  • Reviews of medical test results (STD testing and other types of screening)
  • Chronic disease management (diabetes, high cholesterol, high blood pressure, and others)
  • Chronic skin issues like eczema and psoriasis

Of course, severe conditions and life-threatening issues aren't a good fit for telemedicine. But if you have a new health problem or need some help in managing a non-emergency issue, telemedicine can make the process more convenient.

How does telemedicine work?

Telemedicine is incredibly easy. Raritan Family Healthcare uses an advanced HIPAA-compliant platform that allows you to simply click a provided link and enter the virtual waiting room. Then, the program alerts your doctor that you've arrived for the appointment and connects the video call. 

During the telemedicine appointment, you have a clear view of your doctor on the screen, and they can see you through your phone or computer. You have excellent audio as well, so it's easy to communicate with your doctor in real time. Telemedicine appointments usually take around 15-20 minutes. 

What are the advantages of telemedicine?

Telemedicine is very convenient, and visits can happen from anywhere. You don't have to leave your home or place of work, which saves a lot of travel time. 

Raritan Family Healthcare has the very highest standards for office sanitization and patient protection, but a virtual visit can give you an extra layer of protection because it avoids any unnecessary contact with other people on the way to the office, in the office, and on the way home. 

Some people prefer telemedicine to in-person visits because they don't have to arrange for child care, rearrange their schedule, figure out transportation, or even put shoes on to get the medical attention they need.

As long as you have a tablet, phone, or computer with a camera and microphone, you can access telemedicine visits at Raritan Family Healthcare. Schedule your appointment online, or call the office for help now.
