Perhaps you have heard of the concept of “online urgent care” or “seeing a doctor online” before. Or perhaps it’s a totally new concept for you. Either way, it’s a growing trend, as more and more patients are choosing to ‘attend’ their next doctor’s appointment online. This article aims to outline what exactly online urgent care is and how patients can go about scheduling their next appointment online.
What is an online urgent care?
Online urgent care is a way for patients to get access to doctors online from the comfort of their own sofa (or bed!) The physician and patient meet online as if it were a regular patient visit with the only difference being that the patient has the convenience of not having to leave their own home. There are also many other advantages to online urgent care appointments, including:
- Access to providers even when they’re out of town
- No long drives, no waiting room, no time off from work, no babysitters
- Follow ups can be handled quickly and efficiently
- Allows for earlier diagnoses and treatment
