What is telemedicine?
Telemedicine is the use of information technology and telecommunication to provide clinical health care to patients from a distance. Thanks to technology, the providers at Blue Water Medical in Vancouver can connect and interact with you over a computer and/or mobile device. With this technology, you no longer have to waste time in a waiting room. You can get immediate care for minor but urgent conditions when you need it.
What services can be provided by telemedicine?
With telemedicine through Blue Water Medical, you can receive check-ins and medical advice on our specialized services. This includes pediatric, adult and geriatric care, dermatology, women’s health, medical weight loss services & evidence-based medical advice. All of these services can be provided over live, interactive video.
Who benefits from telemedicine?
More and more patients need care, but can’t make it to the doctor. These patients need to take time off work or use public transportation to get to their primary care physician, not to mention losing out on time that could be spent working or being with their family. Instead of devoting a good chunk of the day toward going to the doctor for a relatively simple condition, we can now address your concerns remotely. If you have a flare up of a chronic condition and want advice on what to do to manage the problem, we can help. Of course, if the problem is more serious and you need urgent medical care, we encourage you to call 911.
