Growth in Telehealth Up 53 Percent

Telehealth allows patients across the country access to online consultations with board certified physicians at any time day or night.  Using technology to provide remote care via video conferencing and other methods, telehealth helps those unable to easily access onsite brick and mortar health care options.  Especially useful in rural areas, where the proximity to a hospital or doctor’s office may be difficult as well as for the elderly who may lack transportation, telehealth is allowing patients to have access to cost-effective, effective health care insights without physically visiting a doctor, often enhancing existing health plans, offering follow up services for care and providing patients with a cost effective alternative.
