Telehealth Q & A

What is telehealth?

Telehealth is a type of medical care that uses electronic information and telecommunication technology so you can visit your health care provider remotely.

Instead of an in-office visit, you meet with your provider through a safe and secure telecommunication portal from a place that’s comfortable and convenient for you. 

All you need for telehealth at Southern New Hampshire Internal Medicine is access to the internet and a computer, smartphone, or tablet. 

Am I a candidate for telehealth?

The professional team at Southern New Hampshire Internal Medicine determines if you’re a candidate for telehealth after a quick phone conversation. They may consider you a candidate for telehealth if you need:

  • Help managing a minor illness
  • A follow-up visit for management of your chronic health condition
  • Medication refills
  • Nutrition counseling 

You may also be a candidate for telehealth at Southern New Hampshire Internal Medicine if you need medical services but are unable to get to the office because of transportation issues. 

Telehealth also makes a good choice for patients with immune-deficiency conditions who may have concerns about going to the doctor’s office because of the potential exposure to a contagious disease.

It’s also helpful for patients who need help managing symptoms from a contagious health issue, like COVID-19 or the flu. 

What can I expect during a telehealth visit?

You can expect comprehensive and patient-focused care during your telehealth visit at Southern New Hampshire Internal Medicine. 

Depending on the reason for your appointment, your provider may request objective data before your scheduled appointment, such as your temperature, weight, or at-home blood pressure readings. 

During the visit, your provider asks detailed questions about your health concerns. They also review your medical history and the types of medications and supplements you take. 

Your provider spends time talking to you about your health and provides specific recommendations based on your needs. They send any prescriptions you need electronically to the pharmacy of your choice.

Though the team can meet many of your health needs through telehealth, they may request an in-office visit if they’re unable to diagnose your health problem through the video call. Or, they may request you come in for lab tests or imaging. 

With telehealth, you get the medical care you need from the comfort of your home. To learn more about telehealth at Southern New Hampshire Internal Medicine, call the office or schedule a consultation online today.
