What is telemedicine?

Telemedicine is the remote delivery of health care services using telecommunications technology. It allows you to consult with your Calm Psych healthcare professional from a distance, typically through video conferencing, phone calls, or secure messaging platforms.

Telemedicine covers a wide range of medical services, including consultations, diagnoses, monitoring, and treatment planning.

How does telemedicine work?

Telemedicine works by connecting you with your provider virtually, eliminating the need for in-person visits. You can schedule appointments online or through a designated telemedicine platform. 

You interact with your provider in real time during your consultation, discussing your symptoms, medical history, and concerns. Your practitioner can conduct an assessment, offer medical advice, prescribe medications, and recommend further steps as necessary.

Can telemedicine work for me if I’m technically challenged?

Even if you struggle with technology, telemedicine can still work for you. Many telemedicine platforms are designed to be user-friendly, with simple interfaces and clear instructions. 

Calm Psych providers and support staff can assist with technical issues and ensure a smooth experience.
