Telemedicine Q&A

What is telemedicine?

Telemedicine provides patients convenient access to medical services without making in-person visits. Broadway Family Practice's system complies with the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA), so you can be sure your data is secure.

You access telemedicine using your laptop, tablet, desktop computer, or smartphone. The internet connection is encrypted, so everything is confidential. When your appointment time arrives, you log in with the details provided by Broadway Family Practice and go to a virtual waiting room.

What are the advantages of using telemedicine?

The primary advantage of telemedicine is no more long lines in urgent care surrounded by a waiting room full of sick people. Instead, you schedule and conduct your visit from the comfort of your couch.

Telemedicine visits save time because there’s no traveling or waiting for your appointment. That means you avoid needing to be away from work for hours and don’t have to organize expensive childminders or someone to take over other caring responsibilities. It also helps save on travel costs.

If you’re in pain or feeling unwell, telemedicine removes the ordeal of struggling in your provider’s office. This is also beneficial for anyone with mobility issues, mental health problems that make leaving home problematic, and people living in rural areas far away from their provider’s office.

What can I use telemedicine for?

Telemedicine has many potential uses, including:


Urgent care

You can use telemedicine to get advice from your provider and necessary prescriptions if you’re sick with the flu, have an upset stomach, or have acute problems like headaches and abdominal pain.


Chronic disease management

Long-term illnesses like diabetes, high blood pressure, and inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) require regular monitoring. Telemedicine is ideal for most routine appointments.


Medication management

If you take medications regularly, your provider checks your dose, how you take the drugs, their effects, and any problems you encounter. These medication management reviews are often perfect for telemedicine.

In-patient visits are sometimes unavoidable, for example, when you start certain medications or your provider needs to evaluate some conditions. You also visit Broadway Family Practice for blood or other lab tests.
