Lifestream Health Center for pain management in the Baltimore/Bowie, Washington D.C. Metropolitan area recognizes that the future of medicine is now! The covid19 pandemic has expedited the need for excellent telemedicine and telehealth services around the world. The need for telemedicine and telehealth are exploding with the current state of the world and the overall health of the United States. Healthcare providers who remain in service for business during the coronavirus pandemic have had no choice but to adapt to telemedicine and telehealth. Patient’s had a need to get help to deal with acute and chronic pain and substance use disorders, even while social distancing was becoming the daily norm in America. Mental health issues, substance abuse, anxiety, and suicides have been rising during the extended quarantine period. The staff at Lifestream Health Center follows strict CDC guidelines to help protect our patients and staff during this difficult time.  We are offering telehealth and telemedicine services and are currently taking new patients.

Telehealth will become the norm in healthcare going forward. The growing need for more clinicians and better access to care grows by the day if not the hour! A natural solution to better help and serve a fearful and doubting population during such uncertain times is telemedicine and telehealth. The need for lower cost healthcare, improved continuity of care, and care management via monitoring and adherence to treatment protocols started a slight nudge toward telehealth and telemedicine which was then propelled into the future by the changes and needs produced by the latest pandemic. People do not want to go to dentists, doctor appointments, or hospitals while the coronavirus is raging across the world and the United States. Perhaps the silent killer from China has propelled healthcare into the future overnight! Those in high-risk groups such as age and comorbidities are not willing to risk their lives just to go to an appointment with a primary-care provider or dentist during the pandemic.

Telehealth is a great way to provide triage and keep patients out of doctor’s offices for issues that can be handled remotely.  This allows for better access to doctors and hospitals for more serious conditions or “sicker” patients. Telehealth allows for a higher quality of managing cases of chronic care conditions, ensuring the careful monitoring of all at risk patients. Telemedicine usually involves a patient/ doctor interaction via video, providing a face-to-face encounter where the doctor and patient can see each other, discuss issues, and even share images such as diagnostic test results. These appointments can be conducted on any device such as a smart phone, computer, or tablet. Greatly improved digital clarity and device computing power allows for this type of appointment to suffice in lieu of an in-person visit.  This service is invaluable for older and at-risk patients during these trying and uncertain times.  These appointments also provide the convenience of staying at home vs driving in traffic and sitting in crowded waiting rooms

Telehealth and Pain Management

At Lifestream Health Center, our patient’s health and wellbeing comes first! Generally, the cost of outpatient care is less expensive than hospital-based care. With the growing demand in the healthcare system, telehealth and its components offer the opportunity to provide quality healthcare services remotely, offer tools to manage supply and demand, and provides a wonderful convenience to patients. Many healthcare providers who started to use telehealth and telemedicine during the Covid19 pandemic have extended the utilization of this type of appointment with the reasoning being the overall safety of patients and staff. The covid19 pandemic has acted as a catalyst in taking telehealth and telemedicine into the future. The most important factor is for individual patients to follow-up with their healthcare needs; however, while not exposing themselves to any unnecessary risks or harms.
