Telemedicine and prescription medical services make healthcare more accessible. Though created with the same goal, they differ in usage in the treatment trajectory.
Telemedicine involves real-time consultation, diagnosis, monitoring, and treatment with a licensed physician through video calls, voice calls, or online chat. Patients can also receive prescriptions for oral medication.
Prescription digital therapeutics, or Digital therapeutics, are FDA-approved software applications that provide medical aid to ease symptoms and encourage behavioral changes. These can be used anytime as they are mobile-based devices.
Telemedicine and Digital therapeutics provide a holistic medical plan unique to each patient, as physician advice and research are vital in developing medical software while using digital therapeutics gives doctors more information about a patient’s day-to-day experience.
