Telemedicine - The Future of Healthcare Delivery

Telemedicine, also referred to as telehealth, is rapidly becoming an incredibly viable option for care. In fact, in a recent Harris Poll, 64% of adults said they would be willing to conduct doctor visits by video. There's great value in the convenience and efficiency it can bring to patients on a day-to-day basis. And, it empowers consumers by placing control in their hands.

The U.S. telemedicine market is expected to reach $4.5 billion by 2018.

Telemedicine presents many advantages – offering plan members 24/7 access to care from home, at work or whenever they need it, while offering self-funded employers savings and the potential to improve the productivity and satisfaction of their employees.

Arguably the most groundbreaking telemedicine service is the use of technology as a substitute to the physician’s office, where patients can connect with a doctor via smartphone, tablet or smart TV to obtain a diagnosis, determine a treatment plan or get a prescription without having to leave their home or office. Ultimately, this sort of access can keep consumers out of primary care facilities, doctor’s offices and the ER – avoiding costly health claims.

The cost of a telemedicine call is typically $40 compared with $125 for a traditional office visit.
