Primary care professionals are now supporting the future of medicine and are offering GPs telemedicine work. Telemedicine is the treatment and diagnosis of patients via telecommunications technology. From a patients prospective telemedicine offers convenient access to specialist GP care as the patient can speak with a GP from the comfort of their own home. With Telemedicine, a patient is able to see a GP in as little as 5 minutes or alternatively are able to book a time which is most convenient for the patient which is highly beneficial for patients seeking medical advice around work hours or child care for example.
From a GPs prospective telemedicine offers the ability to work from home at hours convenient to themselves. This increases GP workforce capacity in a market where GPs are in short supply. Telemedicine also offers GPs a large degree of flexibility (as mentioned the ability to work from home at hours suited to themselves.)
Telemedicine work can be viewed as supplementary for a GP (much like out of hours) or a GP could make a career out of it if they wished. GPs working in telemedicine are also at the forefront of medicine, pioneering new technologies designed to enhance patient care.
Telemedicine is a new and exciting field and will no doubt play an integral role in the future of medicine. PCP are glad to be supporting.
