Teacher Saves Time and Money with Virtual Doctor Visit
In an effort to improve access to care, hospitals across the state offer virtual exams for non-emergent needs.
Virtual exams, like Greenville Health System’s (GHS) Smart Exam, enable patients to register and complete a guided questionnaire, to be reviewed by a local provider who then offers a treatment plan.
Patients can access these exams from their phone, tablet or computer, allowing them to connect with a doctor wherever they are, at an affordable rate. GHS reports the average patient wait time is just over ten minutes, while patients estimate their time saved at almost three hours.
