What are the benefits of telemedicine?

  • Improved Access – For over 40 years, telemedicine has been used to bring health care services to patients in distant locations. Not only does telemedicine improve access for patients, but it allows physicians and health facilities to expand their reach beyond their own offices. In addition, patients with limited mobility benefit from virtual visits.
  • Cost Effectiveness – Reducing or containing the cost of health care is one of the most important reasons for funding and adopting telemedicine technology. It has been shown to reduce the cost of health care and increase efficiency through better management of chronic diseases, shared staffing, reduced travel times, and fewer or shorter hospital stays.
  • Improved Quality – Studies have consistently shown that the quality of health care services delivered through telemedicine are as good as those given in traditional, in-person consultations. Some specialties, like mental health, report a superior product, with greater outcomes and patient satisfaction.
  • Patient Demand – Consumers want telemedicine. Time is a vital commodity and something people want more of. The greatest impact of telemedicine is providing convenience to the patient without sacrificing quality of care. Using telemedicine technologies reduces travel time and related stresses for the patient. These services offer patients the access to providers that might not be available otherwise, as well as medical services without the need to travel long distances.
