As much as we don’t like to admit it, COVID-19 has changed the way we provide and receive services, and that includes services related to your health care. Fortunately, we have a solution: OneShare Health Telemedicine Services called Smart Virtual Care, brought to you by Clever Health™!

How Does Smart Virtual Care (Telemedicine) Work?

Initially, Telemedicine was created to treat patients who lived in areas with a shortage of medical care professionals, as well as for those who lived too far from local health facilities. Today, Telemedicine is still used in these instances, but it's steadily becoming a tool for convenient medical care—and convenient access to such medical care has become an absolute necessity these days.

With Smart Virtual Care (Telemedicine), you spend less time in waiting rooms and more time receiving immediate attention for minor but urgent conditions.

However, it is important to note that Smart Virtual Care (Telemedicine) is intended to treat non-emergency conditions. If you suspect your situation is Life-Threatening or Life-Altering, you should call 911, immediately. OneShare Health defines a Life-Threatening or Life-Altering situation as:

A condition which, if not immediately in receipt of medical treatment, has a high likelihood of causing death or causing major irreversible bodily harm (including, for example, loss of arm, leg, hand or foot; loss of sight or hearing; paralysis, or loss of brain function). The following are key signs and symptoms of Life-Threatening Emergencies: respiratory distress or cessation of breathing; severe chest pains; shock; uncontrolled bleeding; choking; poisoning; prolonged unconsciousness; severe burns; any complaint or observation which indicates head or spinal cord injury. The following are examples of Life-Altering Emergencies: broken bones; visible bones; or dismemberment.

Additionally, based on treatment protocols, doctors may not prescribe an antibiotic for viral illnesses such as most colds, sore throats, coughs, sinus infections, and the flu. Clever HealthTM Virtual Care or Teladoc® (in MA) Telemedicine physicians may even suggest alternative treatment options such as a prescription for symptom relief or over-the-counter medication. 

With Clever HealthTM Smart Virtual Care (Telemedicine), the doctor is always in, offering convenient relief for your body and peace of mind. Clever HealthTM makes Smart Virtual Care better, faster, and easier. At your fingertips, Clever HealthTM can more efficiently and accurately take care of non-emergent health care needs.
