Why Telemedicine?

+ Compensation gets a boost - Charging a convenience charge for the telemedicine visit (televisit) is acceptable to most patients for eliminating the problems associated with an office visit (travel, waiting, taking time off work, etc.). Plus, patients are more likely to contact you than go to the ER with non-life threatening problems if they have the ability to have a televisit.

+ Much more convenient for patients - 64% of patients expressed interest in telemedicine and 70% said they would prefer receiving a prescription via televisit vs an in-person visit. Patients really do not like the travel and wait time required for an office visit, isn't that true?

+ Convenient for Providers - Replacing follow-up visits (normally 10-15 minutes on average) with a televisit (normally 3-5 minutes), saves you and your patients time. Bottom line, patients benefit and your practice benefits too.

+ Expanded patient reach - You are no longer limited to seeing patients in your office, clinic, or hospital. Your effective reach can be worldwide. In the U.S.A., it is as far as your licensing extends.

+ Provides better care for patients - The quality of healthcare services delivered via telemedicine are as good or better than those given in traditional in-person consultations, studies have shown. Especially with mental health and ICU care, telemedicine has proven to provide a superior visit, with greater outcomes and patient satisfaction.
