What is telemedicine?

Telemedicine is a health service where you meet with your health provider virtually. Instead of driving to the office, you visit over the phone or video chat on your computer or smartphone. This allows you to see your doctor from any place that works for you.

The Arizona Heart Rhythm Center is a state-of-the-art practice dedicated to providing comprehensive cardiovascular care to all who seek it. The practice offers telemedicine appointments to make it more convenient for you to see the specialists.

What do I do to prepare for telemedicine?

The Arizona Heart Rhythm Center staff provides specific instructions on preparing for your telemedicine appointment. They might ask you to download the app they use to do telemedicine before your appointment.

They also request that you have a list of all your medications and any pertinent medical information ready to go before your appointment. This can include prescription dosages and your blood pressure, blood glucose numbers, and/or weight.

They also request that you have your home blood pressure machine at your appointment to check your reading during your telemedicine visit.

The practice sends you a link to your appointment about two hours before your visit. They request you conduct a pre-call test before your appointment time. The practice will also send you a reminder text about 15 minutes before your appointment.

What can I expect during telemedicine?

Your Arizona Heart Rhythm Center telemedicine appointment should take 15-20 minutes. During your visit, your provider reviews your medical history, your medications, and the requested health information. Your provider also asks about any recent health concerns.

Once the specialist gathers all the necessary information, they review your treatment plan and goals. If you need prescription refills, your provider sends the request electronically to your pharmacy.

In some cases, the specialist may have you come to the office if they need to do additional testing to better understand your health problem.

Am I a candidate for telemedicine?

Call the Arizona Heart Rhythm Center to see if you’re a candidate for telemedicine. The practice may offer these visits for new patients to gather initial information and discuss testing needs.

The Arizona Heart Rhythm Center can also provide telemedicine appointments for follow-up visits once you’re on a routine treatment plan.

Call the Arizona Heart Rhythm Center today or schedule a consultation online.
