Given the emergence of the COVID-19 pandemic and its impact on all countries in the world, efficient and effective healthcare is needed now more than ever. The United States alone is responsible for 27% of global COVID-19 statistics, having a total of 2.93 million out of the 11.4 million documented positive cases worldwide as of writing.
The restrictive measures put in place to minimize the spread of the virus have taken a toll on the daily lives and mental health of people all over the world. Access to healthcare has become challenging due to the restriction in movement. Despite that healthcare should be a fundamental human right, not everyone who requires care is able to receive it optimally due to the strain of the pandemic on healthcare systems.
LiveMedConnect believes that everyone should have access to the healthcare they need. Through their innovative technology in service delivery, patients will no longer have to set an appointment days or even weeks away for quick check-ups. Healthcare will be made available to all without it having to cost an arm and a leg. By making teleconsultation services simpler and more affordable for all regardless of geographic location, all patients will be able to promptly receive the care they need when they need it.
The usage of Telemedicine has increased sharply in recent years, with 76% of US hospitals connecting patients and doctors at a distance via technology, but despite the availability of this more convenient method, the majority of Americans prefer the traditional way and would rather choose to visit their doctors and receive care in person than via remote technology. That was the case until the surge of the COVID-19 pandemic. Now in this era, more individuals are opting to go for the convenient option, which is to go online and consult remotely.
LiveMedConnect, as an affordable method of healthcare, is a game-changer when it comes to keeping people healthy, especially during the COVID-19 era, when social distancing has become a commonplace term and is vital to prevent the further spread of the pandemic. There is no need to travel, saving up on transportation time and costs, and no need to spend time in the waiting room, where the chances of contracting illnesses due to exposure to other patients are greater. Over 20 million people in the United States live in areas where access to healthcare is difficult, but now, even patients residing in rural areas who are unable to visit their doctors are able to regularly consult as well. This convenient method of consultation will also allow the patient to stay at the top of his health by better managing lifestyle, medication, and chronic conditions.
LiveMedConnect is able to treat the most common acute illnesses, in partnership with Breakthrough, LiveMedConnect’s behavioral health therapy department. With an army of US Board Certified doctors, each patient is guaranteed to receive the optimal healthcare service he requires. The evaluation of the doctors and the overall appointment after each consultation ensures the satisfaction of the patient and the ongoing improvement of the system.
With the growing popularity of Telemedicine, the health of the general public will surely improve. If you are interested in finding out more about LiveMedConnect and how they work, visit their website and follow them on Facebook.
