How Telemedicine Can Help You Skip A Visit To The Doctor
Many doctors and practices are utilizing technology to see patients during this time of social distancing. Video Visits are not something we, at CityDoc, added after confirmed COVID-19 cases appeared in the DFW metroplex.

What is telemedicine? Telemedicine refers to the program where medical care and diagnosis is provided to patients from a distance, usually by phone or video conference. This may be a simple situation of two or more medical specialists considering a particular situation over the phone, or it could be as complex as two surgeons discussing a surgery over a teleconference system while the operation is taking place in an operation theatre.

There is no barrier to the specialists' distance as long as they are connected through a network. Telemedicine can also involve robots delivering medical assistance, care, and information to medical experts anywhere through the system. In short, telemedicine is the application of communication technology to access patients' clinical data and the delivery of medical treatment to them. Telemedicine is also known as “medical care at a distance.”

In a synchronous telemedicine visit, a video conferencing system is one of the most common types of technology utilized. Medical disciplines conducive to this form of treatment include psychiatry, primary care, rehabilitation, cardiology, pediatrics, obstetrics, neurology, and gynecology.
