Exercise is vitally important. The article fails to mention the huge role exercise plays in raising the metabolic rate. However, losing weight is about calories in minus calories spent. It’s as simple as that.
Yet another case for telemedicine. Is there a doctor on this flight? Always via telemedicine.
A new version of the Housecall! I agree!
Our Housecall provider instructions are available to download and print.
Our Housecall patient instructions are available to download and print. They can be given to patients to instruct them how to use Housecall.
The Texas law is similar to the recent Arkansas law in that it requires an established doctor-patient relationship to be present prior to the telemedicine visit.
Housecall was designed to be used as an extension to your provider. All of the other major telemedicine providers out there are designed to provide isolated care for minor health issues from any available doctor. American Well, Teledoc, and Doctor on Demand are all excellent companies that fill the telemedicine niche filled by the walk-in clinic in the face to face healthcare world. Housecall is different.
Housecall is designed for the patient with an ongoing medical relationship. It is designed to accentuate chronic care of some of the most common health conditions that plague many of us today: Hypertension, Diabetes, Obesity, Coronary Atherosclerosis, Congestive Heart Failure, Tobacco Addiction. It provides a platform for a quick follow up visit with your provider free of the lost day of work and the hassle of sitting in a crowded waiting room. It heightens the level of care you can achieve in today’s health care system by allowing you to be the keeper of your health data and giving you the ability to share that data directly with your provider. The Withings app, digital scale, and blood pressure cuffs are supported. The Jawbone app, Up band, and Up24 bands are also currently supported free of charge. Any app data on an iPhone or iPad can be shared with your doctor with a simple screen shot. Any picture can be sent directly to your provider and available for review at your telemedicine session.
We are growing rapidly. We add many new patients and new providers daily. If you want this kind of connection with your doctor and they don’t yet use Housecall, ask them to add Housecall to their practice. Don’t just connect with ANY doctor. Connect with YOUR doctor using Housecall today!
A fantastic review of the current state of telemedicine. Housecall is an app meant for a provider with a current established relationship with a patient. Its purpose is to extend care to the patient remotely in appropriate situations where a face to face visit is not necessary to render quality care. Ask your doctor to provide you with the opportunity to use Housecall for your next appointment!
