With virtual appointments, your doctor is a phone call away
By Kristy Bleizeffer Aug 28, 2020
Now, in the middle of the coronavirus pandemic, protecting your overall health is as important as ever. That means staying in touch with your doctor or healthcare provider.
All Wyoming Health Medical Group providers are now able to make virtual appointments with their patients through TeleMed Wyoming. That means you can talk to your provider about your medications, new symptoms or other health concerns through the video technology of your smartphone, tablet or computer.
Virtual appointments are also available for new patients.
What is telehealth?
Telehealth is the ability to access health care remotely through the video streaming and information sharing capabilities of your mobile devices and computers. A virtual appointment puts you face-to-face with your physician or provider through teleconferencing technology, without having to step inside the physician’s office.
What can you do through a virtual appointment?
- Establish care with a new physician or provider
- Manage your medications and fill prescriptions
- Talk to your doctor about resent lab or test results
- Ask questions about new symptoms or manage your chronic health condition such as diabetes or COPD
- Follow-up with your doctor after a recent procedure or hospital stay
- Be referred to a specialist or another level of care
- And much more
