Fitango Health recently participated in the American Telemedicine Association’s 2017 Conference and Expo in Orlando, Florida. There were many exciting ideas and demonstrations exchanged during the event which will provide healthcare enhancements now and into the future.
Telemedicine - or telehealth - is a rapidly growing field that uses technology, like computers and smartphones, to allow doctors to reach their patients without meeting face to face. Telehealth is increasingly popular among both patients and physicians since it combines healthcare, technology, and convenience.
As more and more people utilize technology, telemedicine continues to grow in popularity. Telemedicine allows patients to connect with their doctors remotely, so that they can receive a consultation from the comfort of their own home without having to trek all the way to their doctor's office. This kind of flexibility is especially valuable to people who live in rural areas far away from their doctor's office, patients with busy schedules, and patients with limited mobility.
Telemedicine is also gaining support among doctors. Physicians can utilize telehealth to reach more patients everyday without the hold-up of patients running late for their appointment. Furthermore, doctors can use various telehealth functions to keep track of their patients by monitoring everything from medication adherence, nutrition intake, to heart rate. Because of its effectiveness, convenience, and usability, doctors and patients alike are turning to telehealth technology.
Fitango Health embraces telemedicine's rising engagement by incorporating essential features into the Fitango Health platform. By logging into your Fitango Health account, you can access in-network physicians who are available through video conference, and make an appointment at a time that works best for you. This is just another way Fitango Health makes managing your health easier, cheaper, and more convenient for you.
