The COVID-19 pandemic changed the way Americans accessed healthcare forever.

Throughout 2020, many hospitals around the world reached capacity with a huge influx of COVID-19 patients. And as the virus continued to spread, patients didn’t want to put themselves or their families at risk by going into the doctor’s office for routine care.

Telehealth services provided patients with access to a massive network of board-certified doctors — all from the safety of their home.

By October of 2020, telehealth usage increased by 3060% compared to the previous year. 

At the time, many were using these online doctor’s services to get treatment for the COVID-19 virus. But now we’re seeing more trends for telehealth in family medicine, pediatrics, allergies, and chronic illnesses.

Telemedicine isn’t new: It was already growing in the U.S. prior to the pandemic. A small percentage of patients used telehealth services to shorten commutes and for things like check-ups and follow-up appointments.

Now, as we adjust to “post-pandemic life,” telehealth services are here to stay. More families have realized they have easier access to healthcare with telehealth services, and can meet without requiring commutes, wait room times, and exposure to contagions. 

From affordability to accessibility, learn about the many benefits of telemedicine and why telehealth is here to stay after the pandemic.

What Is Telemedicine?

Telemedicine is a virtual on-demand doctor service you can access through your smartphone, laptop, or tablet. 

Once you sign up to become a member with myCallADoc, you can talk to a board-certified doctor from wherever you are — 24/7, 365 days a year. Telehealth doctors can treat and diagnose your illness, and even write discounted prescriptions that get sent straight to your local pharmacy, wherever you are.

Our online doctors follow the same HIPAA policies and procedures and utilize the same secure information storing systems as your in-person doctor. So you can take care of yourself and your family in a more safe, secure, and convenient way.

Whether you’re traveling and it’s the middle of the night or you’re working from home, telehealth is an affordable, convenient alternative to traditional doctor office visits that helps streamline your health care experience.
