What is Telehealth?

Telehealth was developed to serve a growing number of people in need of medical services but unable to access care at the appropriate level. Every day, thousands of patients are deferring treatment they need because they do not have convenient access to care. Thousands more seek care at the ER, the doctor's office or an urgent care clinic that could have been provided much more quickly, conveniently, safely and cost-effectively over the phone or online. Telehealth is a fast-growing, multi-billion dollar marketplace today improving consumer healthcare around the globe. The American Medical Association has reported that as many as 70% of all doctor visits are for information only or for matters that can be handled over the phone.

History of Telehealth

Telehealth began as a set of tools for healthcare professionals to use for sharing medical information, images and data over long distances. It was cumbersome, expensive, required specialized hardware, and was only suitable for professional to professional communications; the patient was not directly involved. Today... a new generation of telehealth. Telehealth 2.0 which involves direct patient to physician communications on demand. There is no waiting, no driving, no appointment necessary, no claims and no one is denied. Instead of just addressing remote collaboration, we are tackling big economic issues like cost controls, access to care, over-use of inappropriate care settings, loss of productivity and the economic sustainability of physician practices.
