The Convenience of Telemedicine For Travel

Have you ever been on the road for work or traveling for leisure and feel a sinus infection or skin reaction coming on? There is nothing more frustrating than trying to seek healthcare in a foreign environment.

  1. You have find your way to a hospital or care clinic in an unknown city or town.
  2. You will inevitably waste an entire day of your business trip or vacation sitting in said clinic waiting for care.
  3. You’ll probably end up missing out on an important meeting or a day at the amusement park sitting in waiting rooms.
  4. You risk exposure to more germs during your time at the clinic, which may make you even sicker than when you walked into the foreign clinic!
  5. It may end up costing you much more than it should if you don’t have the proper traveling insurance.
  6. No one feels like a healthcare adventure when they are already under the weather, especially when you’re away from your local clinic or hospital.
