To fulfil the requirements of the patients and ensure them a healthy life during this pandemic, telemedicine has become very popular and valuable in the online orthopedic space. Telemedicine in the Orthopedic department plays a significant role because it allows the orthopedic patients to receive the treatments and care from the safety of their own home. Telemedicine is also a great option for follow-up visits, reviewing the test results, and other visits that don’t require any physical contact. Through telemedicine, patients can consult their orthopedists and physical therapists. Adapting to telemedicine is very helpful to provide the patients with a safer alternative to the emergency department and schedule follow-up visits for their orthopedic conditions. Patients can be face-to-face easily with a doctor through the webcam or phone camera safely at home to consult about your condition, test results, and medication.
