MetabolicMD Weight Loss Telemedicine Services
Weight Loss Telemedicine
What is Telemedicine?
Telemedicine is the process of receiving medical treatment through the use of audio and video technologies in real time. While utilizing telemedicine for your weight loss program, you can communicate directly with your physician or nutritionist (“face to face”) without having to be present in our office. Similar to “Facetime” or “Skype”, our CGM weight loss telemedicine services are easy to use and accessible to anyone with an internet connection and computer, laptop, tablet or smartphone. Depending on your needs, you may utilize telemedicine for some or all of your treatment. With this approach, we can assure that geographic distance between you (at home, work, or elsewhere) and our physician office does not inhibit frequent, high-quality patient-physician and patient-nutritionist communication.
Weight Loss Telemedicine and Remote Monitoring Integration
MetabolicMD utilizes a technologically-driven approach to providing you personalized CGM weight loss and metabolic health services. Part of this approach includes remote monitoring of your blood glucose through the use of our CGM platform. We also use an internet-connected scale for periodic reporting of your weight to your physician and nutritionist. The use of telemedicine technology integrates well with these remote reporting techniques. With our face-to-face telemedicine services, our “high tech, high touch” approach to patient support is maintained. You receive quality personalized care with direct visual/audio communication on an uninterrupted basis. Appointments can be scheduled at regular intervals, or even scheduled on a near-immediate basis if requested, without concern for the geographic separation between your home and our practice.
Our weight loss telemedicine services are provided using a private, secure, HIPAA compliant platform. Our contracted telemedicine provider, Doximity, is utilized by thousands of private practice physicians in the United States for hundreds of thousands of patient telemedicine visits annually. Doximity Telemedicine Services is well recognized by patients, physicians, and cybersecurity rating agencies for both the platform’s ease of use and high level of HIPAA compliant security.
