Staying COVID-Free with Telehealth

Since early 2020, people have been doing what they can to cope with the coronavirus pandemic. The novel coronavirus SARS-CoV-2, apparently transmitted via respiratory mechanisms, causes the disease COVID-19. Owing to the extreme contagiousness and associated risks, people have adapted to a new normal of avoiding exposure.

In addition to using a mask when indoors around others, maintaining a safe distance between yourself and people from other households, and practicing thorough handwashing, you may have been avoiding going to the doctor. Many people are concerned that a visit to a health care provider could increase their exposure risk.

However, you can receive the real-time health care support you need — all without leaving the comfort and security of your home — with telehealth.

At Living Water Community Health and Wellness Clinic of Porterville, Lindsay, and Visalia, California, we care about your health and wellness. That's why we've made telemedicine treatment a priority for our patients.

Technological solutions for 2020 problems

With the risks associated with COVID-19, getting to a doctor's office for an exam or treatment becomes more risky, as well. If you do need in-person care, we take all appropriate measures to reduce the spread of COVID-19, including using professional-grade protective equipment (PPE) and advanced sterilization methods.

Minimizing the need for in-person appointments can help reduce your risk as well. That's where today's technological solutions come into the picture. You can use your computer or smartphone to connect directly with our medical professionals. You can communicate in real time, ask and respond to questions, and share images or files.

Security, efficacy, and privacy

Our telehealth solutions are much more effective than just a phone call or an email, letting our experts really connect with you, no matter where you are. When you schedule a telemedicine visit with our care team, you create an account with AthenaHealth to access our online system. 

From the Athena portal, you can schedule your online video appointment, check your messages, and access your billing and health records. During your telehealth appointment, your provider communicates with you one-on-one, so you can frankly and effectively discuss your medical concerns.

With the online portal, you can also upload images or videos of a concerning symptom like a rash, so we can go over it in detail. Your data is secure and protected, and it can only be viewed by authorized users from our office. 

We can even send prescriptions to your pharmacy of choice. You can pick up your renewed or updated medications at your convenience or have them delivered.

Professional care for health and wellness

Whether you need support managing your diabetes, asthma, or weight, you have concerns about your heart health or gynecology needs, or you just don't want to miss a regularly scheduled preventive medicine appointment, the primary care team at Living Water Clinic is here to help. We even provide virtual urgent care.

With telemedicine, you can get the care you need while remaining safely and conveniently at home. Getting regular, prompt medical care can benefit you in many ways, making it easier to catch problems sooner and potentially saving you time, money, and discomfort.

Don't wait to seek medical care or talk to a professional about your concerning symptoms, medication needs, or ongoing health concerns. Contact Living Water Clinic today to set up your telehealth appointment.
