Alsace Urgent Care in Castroville is offering telemedicine services to help prevent spread.
The following is a message from the local provider taking innovative steps to make seeing a doctor safer and easier during the COVID-19 crisis.
“With the Governor’s new telemedicine law, medical providers have the ability to reach more patients in need. Telemedicine provides new opportunities for providers to care for patients outside the traditional office visit. Telemedicine is not a new concept; it is just one that has been slower to develop. ”
“What is telemedicine? The simplest telemedicine set up is just a video call (much like skype or facetime) however the United States requires secure HIPAA compliant video conference tools. Therefore telemedicine companies such as Solv have developed a secure and simple solution for providers.”
“Alsace Urgent Care with Solv now has the ability to care for existing and new patients in our community and around the State of Texas while we are challenged with COVID-19 and social distancing. We will have a provider (MD or Nurse Practitioner) available for a teleconference to meet most needs of patients. Telemedicine will be available 7 days a week.”
“As we navigate the evolving impact of coronavirus on our community, we are offering Telemedicine for ALL individuals (new and current patients).
