Leader In TeleMedicine
Better Value | Better Price | Faster Service
At MedHealth Urgent Care, we have made it our mission to serve Montgomery and the surrounding community, offering top-quality healthcare services. In our area, there are increasing wait times for patient appointments and rapidly decreasing numbers of medical providers. This has lead quickly to a number of patients who have difficulty being seen by a medical provider.
It is our hope and goal that by adding Telemedicine and making adjustments in the way we provide care at MedHealth that we can help address this growing problem in not only ours but surrounding communities.
To that end, we have started to work toward launching a Telemedicine Program as a supplement to what we are already doing at MedHealth Urgent Care. The Telemedicine Program will serve as a more convenient and immediate source of medical care for the community. Using computers, digital platforms, and video conferencing, the Telemedicine Program will make it possible for patients to seek treatment for such conditions as infections, diabetes, high blood pressure and other family medical problems completely remotely!

What are the advantages of telemedicine?
How can telemedicine benefit me?
Telehealth has been shown to overcome barriers to health services caused by distance between patient and provider, access to reliable transportation, fragmentation of care due to gaps in time between appointments, and lack of available providers.
Telemedicine increases access to care
Distance and travel time between patients and care providers can limit access to care. Fortunately, telemedicine can overcome geographic barriers to healthcare, especially for specialized providers. Telemedicine can be particularly beneficial for patients in medically underserved communities and those in rural geographical locations where clinician shortages exist.
Telemedicine improves quality of care delivery
Telemedicine can improve the quality of care for patients with both medical and mental health conditions. A recent study showed that with telemedicine, patients had:
- 38% fewer hospital admissions
- 31% fewer hospital re-admissions
- 63% more likely to spend fewer days in the hospital
- Were more engaged in their healthcare
