As the healthcare landscape in the United States shifts, many chronically ill Americans are left with unanswered questions. Doctor Consultation Online’s™ telemedicine program rises up to meet the demands of a nation in need.

New York City, NY (PRWEB) March 04, 2017

Faced with the potential repeal of the Affordable Care Act, millions of Americans are nervous about the future of healthcare in the U.S. and whether they will be able to attend to their medical needs. While this is true for those in good general health, the fear is even more real for those living with a chronic illness.

A chronic illness is defined as a disease or syndrome that will last three months or longer and cannot be prevented through the administration of vaccines. Some of the most common chronic diseases in the U.S. include: diabetes, heart disease, arthritis, cystic fibrosis and Crohn’s disease. Chronic illnesses have no cure and symptoms do not disappear on their own.

Many chronic illness patients are able to control their symptoms with a variety of medical treatments. Traditionally, this requires regular visits to in-office physicians, specialists, pain relief clinics, surgical centers, hospitals and other medical sites. However, frequent traveling is difficult for a majority of chronic illness sufferers due to a variety of factors, including: pain, limited mobility, fatigue, strict medication schedules and transportation challenges.

Doctor Consultation Online™ now steps in where traditional medicine is lacking. All chronic illnesses must be initially diagnosed and periodically monitored by an in-person physician. All follow-up visits in between those appointments can now be achieved using the innovative telemedicine services offered by Doctor Consultation Online™ for a monthly fee that is lower than most insurance in-office visit co-pays. With a high-speed internet connection and web camera, chronically ill patients can now chat with a doctor online to manage their conditions in their own homes, avoiding unnecessary and costly travel.
