Televisit Q & A
What is a televisit?
A televisit is a way to consult your urologist using advanced, secure forms of communication so you don’t have to visit Kasraeian Urology in person. Televisits can take place via video exchange (Skype, FaceTime, and the like), email, and other Internet channels using text, audio, and audio-video media.
To use televisit technology, you need to have access to a computer, tablet, or smartphone, and you might also use devices provided to you by your urologist to gather data about your condition, including wireless sensors and other patient monitoring technologies.
Are televisits safe?
Televisits are safe and your physicians wouldn’t use them if there were any risk to your health or security.
The urologists at Kasraeian Urology only use televisits where they’re appropriate for patient care. If after talking to you online they feel you need to undergo a physical exam or diagnostic testing, they advise you to come into the clinic for a face-to-face visit.
Every televisit is carried on a secure communication link, and the technology in use at Kasraeian Urology complies fully with HIPAA — the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996. This ensures secure and confidential transmission of all patient information.
What are the advantages of a televisit?
The many advantages of speaking with your urologist at Kasraeian Urology online rather than seeing them in person include:
- The convenience of not having to leave home
- Ease of scheduling an appointment
- Saves considerable time compared to visiting in person
- You are more comfortable at home when feeling unwell or in pain
You can get attention more quickly using a televisit than if you had to wait for an appointment that you could fit in around your busy schedule.
What kinds of urologic conditions are appropriate for a televisit?
Urology is well-suited to televisits, and many types of consultations are appropriate for remote communication. When considering booking a televisit, you can ask the staff at Kasraeian Urology for advice before you schedule your appointment.
Televisit technology is constantly developing, so new ways of using televisits safely and effectively are coming online all the time. It’s now possible to carry out routine procedures like surgical discharge using a televisit, with more applications in the works.
