Last week we had Baby Awesome’s 18 month doctor’s appointment. How the heck is she 18 months already? Our little girl is growing up way too fast!
Ever since I’ve become a mom I’ve noticed that little errands now take more time than ever. If I take Baby Awesome with me we have to get in the car, make sure to work around her nap schedule, etc. If I leave her at home I need to make sure we have someone at home watching her. Getting out of the house just isn’t as easy as it used to be. I’ve pretty much resorted to online for most things.
If I need to go to the grocery store just to “pick up a few things” instead of running out I will order through an online service. If we need a quick dinner, I’ll order online. If we need household items like toilet paper, soap, etc. – I will get them online. It feels like a lot of the items we need can be bought at the click of a button without having the hassle of visiting a store.
Technology has not only enabled us to get our errands done online, but it’s changing health care, too. If you need to go to the doctor for a non-emergency situation, you can now do so from the comfort of your own home. United Healthcare now offers Virtual Visits where you can see and talk to a doctor on your computer or mobile device. This is so convenient for me because the thought of bringing Baby Awesome to the doctor and have her sit in the waiting room with me is enough to make me think twice about even going to the doctor. Now I don’t have to think that way.
You don’t need an appointment for a virtual visit, and it costs less than a normal doctor’s visit. If there’s a wait you might need to spend some time in the virtual waiting room but that’s about it. All of the doctors are U.S. certified board medical professionals and they can prescribe medication as well.
Of course if you have a serious emergency you should always go visit your doctor in person but it’s nice to know that an option for a virtual visit is there if you need it. You can learn more about Virtual Visits here.
