The Benefits of Affinity Health’s Telehealth Consulting
Affinity Health, a leading provider of high-quality Telehealth Consulting – a convenient way of getting medical assistance without spending more than necessary.
Regardless of your unique healthcare needs, we all have one thing in common. We need to stay connected, no matter what happens around us.
We are moving forward into our “new normal” in the wake of COVID-19. Maintaining that connection is paramount. This is why Affinity Health offers the Telehealth Consulting Benefit.
What is Telehealth?
Telehealth is health care, education, and information services provided via remote technologies. It is the new and trendy way of accessing medical services worldwide.
This is how it works all over the world. A radiologist may read and interpret imaging results for a patient over the phone. In a non-life-threatening condition, a physician may conduct an urgent consultation by video.
So many South Africans now depend on the internet and mobile devices. This is what has spurred the demand for telehealth technology. Patients depend on telehealth to support and improve their health and wellbeing.
Telehealth consulting ensures that patients receive the best possible care without leaving home.
Affinity Health’s Telehealth Consulting
The Telehealth Consulting Benefit is available on the Affinity Health Day-to-Day and Combined Plans. It exists to ensure that members access a wide range of service providers. It links members to more hospitals, medical experts and specialists.
“Aside from the cost of having medical aid or insurance, other costs associated with travelling to the doctor or hospital can be extremely high,” says Murray Hewlett, CEO of Affinity Health.
“Weighing up the above factors can result in patients missing appointments. This means that they won’t get the health care and support they need.”
The Telehealth Consulting Benefit is for members who want to consult telephonically or online. Members can do this from the comfort of their own homes or at work.
Affinity Health members may use the Telehealth Consulting Benefit for the following:
· Telephonic Diagnosis
· Medication Scripts, where necessary
· Digital Sick Notes for up to 2 days
· GP & Dentist Referral, where necessary
· Unlimited Medical Advice and Extended Operating Hours
