3 Reasons Why Telemedicine is Perfect for Both Baby Boomers and Millennials

Everyone needs to speak to their doctor from time to time. When you are experiencing unpleasant digestive symptoms or have a question for your doctor, getting in touch with them is the key to relief. At Digestive Healthcare Center, we now offer telehealth electronic visits, where you can utilize video-conferencing from your own home to speak with one of our physicians. This service is perfect for patients of any age, and below, we’ll walk you through some of the ways that both millennials and baby boomers can benefit from a telemedicine appointment.

It’s Convenient

Convenience is a very appealing factor for those in any age group. We as humans are always seeking methods of getting things done that are efficient and save us time, and telehealth meets these needs perfectly. Millennials and baby boomers who work will find that it is much easier to see a doctor when it is on your own time, from the comfort of your own home. Booking an appointment to visit a doctor’s office means trying to coordinate the doctor’s schedule with your own, which often means waiting weeks to get an appointment. With telemedicine, you won’t have to wait long to get an appointment with your doctor, where you can speak to them about your symptoms or concerns and to find relief. Time is also saved due to the fact that you won’t have to spend any time sitting in a waiting room!

It’s User-Friendly

One of the biggest benefits of telemedicine for those of any age is the fact that it is extremely user-friendly and simple to set up. If you are a baby boomer who is sometimes wary about constant evolving technology, telemedicine will eliminate any concerns you have. Registration can be done on a desktop or laptop computer, and the device you use for your visit needs to have a camera and microphone. All you need to do to register is follow the prompts on the screen and then request a visit with the physician of your choice. Registration must be done on a computer, but your visit can take place through the app on your smartphone! Our staff will guide you through the process, and you’ll be notified when your provider is ready to see you and begin your visit. Millennials are often known to be tech-savvy, but telemedicine is already simple to set up and use, which makes it even more convenient.

It Covers Various Areas of Care

It is a common misconception that digestive problems do not tend to affect young people. Gastroenterological conditions can affect people of any age- for example, Irritable Bowel Syndrome is actually more common in people under the age of 45, and often occurs among those in their 20s and 30s. No matter what age you are, telemedicine can be used to talk to a doctor about anything concerning your digestive health. Telemedicine is ideal for asking your doctor a digestive health question or for getting urgent treatment for a minor medical issue. During your visit, your doctor will advise you on the next steps to take, and answer any questions to give you a better insight on your health. Telemedicine can also be used for follow-up appointments. If you previously visited our office, it may be easier to conduct your follow-up appointment from home, especially if it was simply meant to update your doctor on your condition. Whether you are a baby boomer or a millennial, medications are a common path to treatment for gastroenterological conditions or issues. Telemedicine can be used to request a prescription refill from your doctor without you needing to even step out your front door. The system covers an array of areas, so its a great option for anyone seeking guidance from a gastroenterologist.
