What if I told you, you’ve already done Telehealth.
What if I said, you’ve probably done it multiple times.
Telehealth isn’t as foreign of a concept as most people may think it is.
Recently, during Module 2 of my Telehealth Income Explosion Program, I shared a conversation I had had with someone about digital healthcare.
You see, the curse of the expert is we get lost in our own head and we forget where we’ve come from.
Picture your mother. She’s 3000 miles away, in a country where health care is not available and she slips and hurts her back. And the first thing she does is call you.
And, what do you do?
I bet you start asking her what happened and how bad is the pain?
What happens when you touch it there?
What happens when you move like this?
You then probably diagnose her and tell her she’s got muscle spasms and tension. Advise her to ice it and guide her through some simple exercises.
You then say you’re going to call her tomorrow and see how she’s doing.
Guess what? You’ve just done telehealth.
And we take for granted how simple some of the advice is that we give people. And sometimes it’s not even about the exercises, often it’s the assurance that what has happened is okay and they’re on the road to recovery, which gives them peace of mind.
That, right now, is all we are doing for patients.
And anybody who devalues that doesn’t understand human beings and is more interested in their own skills then helping people.
Nothing else is needed right now.
Basically, all you have to do is pretend your patients are your mother and you’re just trying to help.
And if everybody just thinks like that, this telehealth thing becomes easy to sell and you stop overthinking it.
You don’t need fancy funnels and tags and all these other things.
It comes down to, are you stuck a home? Are you worried about not being able to get help? If you are, I’m your guy. Let’s talk.
If you haven’t already, you can still enroll in my Telehealth Income Explosion program and get access to content like this and much more.
