Living in a digital age means that technology is consistently evolving to fit the needs of its users. Especially, as of late and in light of Covid-19, traditional in-person services have transitioned into remote services. Healthcare is no exception.
Crowded hospitals and limited face-to-face access mean that providers depend more and more on innovative Telehealth solutions to serve their patients.
So what is Telehealth?
According to the Health Resources Services Administration, telehealth is the use of electronic information and telecommunications technologies to support long-distance clinical health care. More than that, it involves patient and professional health-related education, public health, and health administration training.
These technologies include videoconferencing, store-and-forward imaging, streaming media, and remote testing and sample collection.
Why is Telehealth the future of Healthcare?
As Telehealth continues to grow, patients will discover that they can receive quality healthcare services from the comfort of their homes. Most Healthcare plans will eventually involve some form of remote assistance. Even critics and naysayers will be forced, over time, to adapt to telehealth practices.
At Genotox Laboratories, we understand how telehealth can best serve the interests of patients, physicians, and medical professionals alike. NextGenUDT featuring ToxProtect DNA-verified Urine Drug Testing (UDT) the industry’s first no contact, at home drug testing service. On-demand test results are delivered to a clinician’s EMR or web portal.
It’s vital that remote testing is authentic and accurate. This includes opiates and opioids, antipsychotics, skeletal muscle relaxants, stimulants, cannabinoids, and other illicit drugs.
Knowing an at-home drug test definitively authenticates samples, reveals mislabeling errors, and detects urine sample substitutions is important. Not to mention, it encourages patients down the right path towards sobriety.
