Telemedicine at STAT Medical makes your care more accessible and convenient
Telemedicine, also commonly called telehealth, will play an important role in the future of healthcare and in keeping you and your family healthy and well. At STAT Medical, we take a proactive approach not just to your health but also to how we care for you.
For that reason, telemedicine isn’t just coming to Fort Lauderdale; it’s already here. If you need to make a quick visit, our telemedicine option helps you get in and out faster, with the same great care you can always expect from the STAT Medical team.
What is telemedicine?
Telemedicine is what it sounds like: the delivery of care at a distance using telecommunications technology. It enables doctors and other healthcare professionals to evaluate, diagnose and treat patients with a routine visit without being in the room with them. Over the past decade, there has been an increase in the adoption of telemedicine, and it will continue to become a more important—and more frequently utilized—part of healthcare in this country.
While “telemedicine” and “telehealth” are often used interchangeably, they are somewhat different. It’s helpful to think of telemedicine as the subset of telehealth that involves the direct delivery of care (evaluation, diagnosis and treatment). Telehealth is broader; it includes non-clinical healthcare, such as meetings between providers, public health functions, health promotion, and more.
At STAT Medical in Fort Lauderdale, we use telemedicine/telehealth in keeping with our commitment to a holistic approach, meaning that we use it in whatever ways we’re able to for your best health.
Get the benefits of tomorrow’s healthcare today!
Here at STAT Medical, our telemedicine capabilities mean that you can:
- Be seen sooner – If you need to be seen in our office quickly, telemedicine allows you to see, talk to, ask questions of, and answer questions for one of our off-site providers. This increases the number of people we can help…and helps you get into and out of our office more quickly.
- Get prescriptions refilled more rapidly – Rx refills don’t take a lot of time, and telemedicine lets us keep your appointment to its barest minimum by not putting you in the same process as patients who need more time with our providers.
For high-quality, experienced medical care today that’s as convenient and accessible as tomorrow’s healthcare model, trust and call—or walk in—to STAT Medical. We offer telemedicine services for routine visits, like prescription refills, quick questions, and more.
