The American healthcare system has been slowly moving toward new, technologically-advanced practices for years, but the entire industry has needed an overall transformation for decades. With the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, deep-rooted obstacles to these necessary changes were finally pushed aside in a matter of months.
These changes brought about virtual doctors, in-home health visits, and an entire system designed to improve patient access to quality care. Telemedicine use increased to 49% in 2020 from 11% in 2019.
Telemedicine has transformed our ability to gain access to healthcare. Using a telemedicine doctor became common practice for many Americans during the stay-at-home orders in the beginning stages of the COVID-19 pandemic. And while this virtual connection to a healthcare provider created a whole new paradigm for doctor-patient interaction, it is desperately missing a key component for a comprehensive, fully developed telehealth program.
The key missing component? Mobile care. While a patient can have an appointment with their doctor in the safety of their own home, a telehealth provider cannot do it all — they still cannot examine a patient remotely, perform lab tests, ultrasounds, or X-rays.
Mobile Urgent Care combines telehealth services with clinicians that actually come to your home. Telemedicine should include a consult with a doctor who can ask for same-day diagnostic testing to be performed within an hour or two at your home or workplace.
Speaking with a doctor from the comfort of your couch is a much-needed industry evolution. The greater benefit is when that doctor can send a clinician to a home after a virtual appointment to get tests done quickly and efficiently for the patient.
After an online doctor’s appointment, instead of the patient calling to set up a separate appointment to drive to a facility for X-rays, lab tests, digitized EKGs, or ultrasounds, a Mobile Care Unit drives directly to the patient’s house or business to provide any of the services the doctor has requested. This type of immediate care creates amazing benefits for both patients and employers:
