What Is Telemedicine?
Simply put, telemedicine is the combined use of telecommunications and information technology to provide health care that you would otherwise receive at a doctor’s office – but from a distance. It enables patients to overcome distance barriers and improves their access to medical services that are not usually available in remote or rural communities.
Telemedicine for Veterans and the Community
Although telemedicine is intended for patients of all ages and backgrounds, in general, it rarely includes services that specifically address the needs of military veterans. At eMDnow, however, veterans and their families can receive specialized services from an online primary care physician who has also previously served in the military. It all begins by downloading the eMDnow mobile app for your iPhone or Android device.
Online Doctor for Veterans and Non-Veterans
With eMDnow telemedicine, veterans and their families can access an online doctor with their smartphone, personal computer, or tablet and receive the timely primary health care they need – without having to travel a long distance, and without considerable expense. Using state-of-the-art technology, your online doctor can evaluate and diagnose your condition, recommend treatment, provide referrals, and prescribe medication – often within a matter of minutes.
