ANP Pharma supports the use of telemedicine as part of their worldwide healthcare services and pharmacy distribution network. Whether your need is antimalarial medications, evaluation of malarial dermatology, or something much simpler, telemedicine is rapidly becoming the standard response to many clinical needs.

Telemedicine is the use of electronic data and telecommunication technology allowing doctors and healthcare professionals to link to patients remotely, providing the healthcare they need. Telemedicine has always been around to a degree when doctors and nurses have been unable to see people face to face. Now advanced technology and the prompt of the global pandemic have brought telemedicine to the forefront of medical and pharmaceutical services.

The Advent of Telemedicine

Telemedicine came to the fore during the start of the COVID-19 pandemic which changed the way that patients interacted with medical staff in order to practice social distancing.

Telemedicine can be provided using a phone service or face to face using an internet device and one of the many screen-based packages available, allowing two people to see each other whilst they communicate.

The Benefits of Telemedicine

There are numerous benefits of telemedicine either over the phone or via video chat.

  • Talk to a doctor or healthcare professional from the privacy of your own home
  • Stay safe from diseases like COVID-19
  • Avoid traveling if you are too unwell or have mobility issues
  • Save travel time and transportation costs
  • Allows patients to send and receive messages from their doctor using email or live chat services
  • Patients can be monitored remotely
  • There is a reduced wait time for services and a decreased frequency of clinic visits

What Types of Care Can You Receive Using Telemedicine?

  • General healthcare such as wellness assessments, check-ups, and blood pressure control
  • Advice about certain non-emergency illnesses
  • Prescriptions for medicines like antimalarial medications and advice on malarial dermatology
