When was the last time you rushed to the ER in the middle of the night after discovering a suspect-looking rash on your kiddo, only to be given a prescription for over-the-counter Benadryl by an overworked doctor? Oh, and that’s after HOURS in the waiting room, of course! Or, perhaps you decided to wait it out until the morning, but all of that online research that you did before you tucked your little one into bed put your mind in some pretty dark places.
If these scenarios don’t sound familiar, then good on you–your child has one hell of an immune system! But, for the rest of us that have kiddos who routinely come home from school with mysterious illnesses galore, there is a much better alternative.
Yes, there is a new online platform that aims to offer medical advice, without having to risk an unnecessary visit to the emergency room.
The solution is called Med RM, and it’s a startup that allows its users to get quick answers from Doctors, Vets, Pediatricians and Nurse practitioners via Teleconsultations.
Our nurses can facilitate wound and ostomy telehealth consults. And If the situation requires a doctor, the nurse sets up a video visit with one.
But for customers who may not have had prior telehealth exposure to the benefits of telemedicine consultations. Here are a few:
• Easy access to specialists.
• Lower cost. No travel involved
• Medical access for people without health insurance.
• Medical access for people in rural areas.
• Reduced exposure to pathogens.
• Middle-of-the-night care for babies and children.
• No need for childcare.
Telehealth has numerous effects on patient care. Patients have more flexibilty, adhere better to their treatments and have better outcomes as a result.
Medical professionals also benefit personally and professionally from telehealth. With telemedicine, they're able to benefit not only physically, but mentally, and are able to increase collaboration between different medical disciplines, respectively. Furthermore, they can follow up very easily with their patient.
Its completely free for patients of medical groups, and insurances that subscribe to Med RM. Otherwise, the service costs just R350 per use–roughly R 300 cheaper than the average in-person Doctors appointment. And that's not counting travel expenses.
On the animal side we collect secure health data from the farm level, collaborate with their caregiving teams, provide veterinary services, and track health outcomes in real time
Med RM offers several key advantages over in-person on-farm visits:
• Enabling veterinarians to serve dozens of farms simultaneously by telecommuting
• Giving livestock owners a wider access to quality animal care
• Increasing farm biosecurity through faster disease identification and by reducing human traffic between farms.
Veterinary care can be a logistical challenge for many pet owners. Long car rides with stressed animals and anxiety-producing office visits can cause many pet parents to fall back on “Dr. Google” to avoid the trip altogether. The result is often delayed care, pricey emergency visits and poor clinical outcomes.
Med RM offers more affordable services, convenience and practicality, less distress, improved access to specialist care and more efficient triage.
There is no time limit and cases stay open for two full days, so pet parents & patients can continue to access the doctor via chat for any follow-up questions or concerns.
