Telemedicine Q & A

What is telemedicine?

Telemedicine is a health service that allows you to communicate with your provider remotely. 

Most telemedicine appointments are done online by computer, tablet, or smartphone. This allows you and your provider to see each other through a video chat. However, if you don’t have reliable internet access, you can also use a phone for telemedicine.

The purpose of telemedicine is to make it more convenient for you to get the health services you need when you can‘t get to the office. 

What care can I get through telemedicine?

The Cookeville Medical Clinic RHC team can talk to you about the type of health care services you can get through their telemedicine platform. 

Telemedicine makes a great tool for patients who need regular medical monitoring for a chronic disease like diabetes or heart disease. The team may also suggest telemedicine for prescription refills.

You may also see your provider through telemedicine for a sick visit so you don’t have to come to the office when you’re feeling ill or have a contagious condition. 

Telemedicine may also work for patients with recurring health conditions like migraines or urinary tract infections.

What can I do to prepare for a telemedicine appointment?

The Cookeville Medical Clinic RHC team provides you with instructions on how best to prepare for your appointment. They may request you gather health information before your visit, such as your weight, height, or body temperature. Or, they may need your blood glucose or blood pressure readings.

The team also requests finding a quiet place with good lighting when meeting with your provider online.

What can I expect during a telemedicine appointment?

You can expect attentive care during your telemedicine appointment at Cookeville Medical Clinic RHC. The specifics of your appointment may depend on your health needs.

Your provider asks detailed questions about your health concerns and symptoms, reviews the requested data, and spends time talking to you about your health condition. Your provider sends the prescription electronically to the pharmacy if you need any medication.

In some cases, the team may request you come to the office for diagnostic tests, imaging, or an in-person evaluation. The team may also schedule a follow-up telemedicine appointment to monitor your health and adjust your plan as needed.
