Offered by Lauren Lombardi – Advanced Urgent Care
From telemedicine to mobile clinics, medical practices are consistently (and quickly!) adopting new ways to improve access to health services. Especially in rural communities with limited proximity to urgent and emergent health facilities, these methods of healthcare delivery have proven beneficial.
Long gone are the days when you had to physically drive to the doctor’s office for cold symptoms, or a small laceration. While that’s still an option, telemedicine services have made it much more convenient (and 100% HIPAA compliant) to receive diagnoses via webcam visits and even text messages. These are great options for treating minor injuries and illnesses, especially if you’re located too far from a doctor’s office (or you just don’t want to leave bed when you’re feeling icky).
Mobile clinics are also growing to bring health services directly to the patients, instead of the other way around. For employers, mobile clinics also provide the convenience of on-site drug screenings for a hiring event or treatment for work-related injuries. As an urgent care and occupational medicine provider, we continue to grow our presence, both virtually and through our new mobile clinic, to ensure access to health services far and wide.
