Emerging Trend: Virtual Doctor Visits

Virtual doctor visits could become as common as face-to-face appointments because health insurers, hospital systems and employers view it as a way to control rising medical costs.

So if the idea of seeing a doctor without leaving the house appeals to you, you’re in luck. Google Helpouts, provides an online marketplace where people can get personalized help over live video chat for a fee. This site will connect users with specialized, screened “experts” in a given field who can provide real-time, human advice, intervention, and help.

One section within Google Helpouts is Google Helpouts Health. Users can choose help from health experts, instant or scheduled, based on their qualifications, availability, price, ratings and reviews.  They can use a computer or a mobile device, provided they have a Google+ account, built-in or external webcam and microphone.

Personal interactive service is just the start of how technology is changing and improving healthcare. Contact Wax Custom Communications today at 305-350-5700 to learn how new technology can benefit your healthcare facility.
