If you are unable to come into one of our offices, for whatever reason, telehealth is a great alternative to ensure you’re getting the healthcare you need. Call your Consolidated Medical Practices of Memphis (CMPM) provider to schedule your telehealth visit. All CMPM providers currently offer telehealth services.
What Is Telehealth?
Telehealth, also sometimes called telemedicine, is simply a “virtual” way of consulting with your healthcare provider. The word comes from a combination of telecommunications and health – basically, it’s about getting your medical advice delivered conveniently via any internet-connected device.
How does it work? You simply make your telehealth appointment by calling your CMPM provider, then follow their instructions to make sure you’re on the right app or website, or simply have your cellphone available and ready for your appointment.
Benefits of Telehealth
First and foremost, telehealth is convenient. It allows you to be comfortable – after all, your doctor is meeting you wherever you are. Among the additional benefits of telehealth visits include:
- Remain in the comfort, safety, and convenience of your own home
- Avoid the hassles of travel, parking, and other time constraints
- No need to take time off work or arrange child care
- Reduced potential exposure to others with communicable diseases
