Spring break is just around the corner for many families across the United States, with a majority 56% of Americans planning on traveling. Wherever you plan on going, it's best to have a plan when an unexpected health concern arises. As the nation's highest-rated telemedicine provider, we are experts in helping take care of medical needs when you're out of town.
Telehealth has seen a steady increase in usage by Americans over the last several years, with 2021 seeing 37% of adults (CDC) opting for virtual over in-person appointments. Not only is telemedicine known for its easy accessibility to medical care, but it is also convenient, allowing patients to get care anytime, anywhere, when they need it most, including times of travel. As it stands, it is also an excellent option for those needing healthcare when far from home. So whether it’s spring break, Christmas, or any other holiday, CallonDoc has made online consultations easy for you!
Affordable Healthcare: Are telehealth visits cheaper?
When away from home, out after hours, or vacationing on weekends and holidays, there are many scenarios where your usual go-to doctor is not available. Instead of dishing out hundreds of dollars to an urgent care facility, you can get care without waiting rooms and high surprise bills.
Studies published by the National Institute of Health and HealthAffairs support the claim that single telehealth visits are cheaper than in-person doctor visits. Particularly valuable when you’re in an unfamiliar place during spring break, telehealth providers like CallonDoc offer prices at a fraction of the cost, along with offering Rx discounts for additional services. That way you can stress less, get the care you need quickly, easily, and affordably before getting back to enjoying your trip more comfortably.
Convenient Scheduling: What does telehealth appointment mean?
On top of suffering increased costs, patients visiting the doctor often waste a lot of time at physical doctor’s visits. According to a Harvard study, most people spend over two hours from the point of traveling to the waiting room to checking out and leaving despite the time with a physician being only 20 minutes. If visiting friends or family, that time could be better served with them or on other activities planned for your spring break trip.
Most telemedicine providers still require appointment scheduling but with more flexibility than an in-person appointment. Services offered by CallonDoc take it a step further by giving a patient access to immediate care after a simple medical form is filled out. This is done through our asynchronous, or text, visits that are started immediately after creating a medical profile. Like forms filled out at a traditional doctor’s office, each medical profile used by CallonDoc includes your medical history, allergies, medications you're currently taking, and the symptoms. All of this is done seamlessly, so you can better enjoy holidays like spring break.
Easy Assessment: What are assessment tools for telehealth?
Telemedicine can be a great resource for minor medical conditions such as ear infections, migraines, and other conditions that develop during holidays like spring break. Based on the condition you select for treatment from our consultation page and the detail provided through our medical form reviewing your symptoms, providers can create a treatment plan to fit your needs that helps you recover quickly.
On-Call Pediatricians: How is telehealth used in pediatrics?
Spring breakers that travel with their kids have one less thing to worry about when choosing CallonDoc. Instead of making a kid even more uncomfortable by going to a pediatrician’s office, you can keep them as comfortable as possible in your home or hotel room and conduct the full consultation through your phone. Then, just like you would with your in-person appointment, all that’s needed from you is a form, a text conversation with a doctor, and then a prescription pickup from your chosen pharmacy if it’s not sent directly to your home. With the process being just one of the benefits found with our pediatrics consultation, you can better enjoy your spring break vacation by choosing CallonDoc for your children when they get sick!
Backup Medication: What will you do if you forget your medications?
CallonDoc can be your go-to resource for many of the most common medications, even during spring break. With our prescription refill, you no longer have to panic when you reach your destination during spring break and notice your medication is not there. With birth control, allergy medication, focus medication, and more available, you can rely on us at home or when traveling within the United States for the holidays!
Private STD Care: Can telehealth treat for STDs?
CallonDoc offers complete privacy and discretion for STD treatment, getting STD symptom relief from the comfort of home or hotel. Treatment is also provided the same day without lab testing or video visits and your prescription to any pharmacy in only a few hours. That way, celebrators like spring breakers or holiday goers can better enjoy the time of year without worry.
Partners also at risk can receive each of our services, with 50% off expedited treatment. Whereas a doctor’s office or treatment center might feel like being in the spotlight, spring breakers can enjoy a far more private experience through telehealth regarding STD treatment.
Trust CallonDoc during your spring break!
Travelers and spring breakers alike throughout the United States will find some of the best healthcare options when using CallonDoc. Telemedicine is the new go-to option for minor medical needs that can be treated quickly and efficiently on your own schedule.
