Access to Specialists
Telemedicine allows you to get healthcare at any time and from any place, as long as you have an Internet connection. It is now possible for the patient to leverage the expertise of specialists who are not nearby. When it comes to serious health issues, you want to consult with the best, not the closet.
Some patients who need the care of a specialist must drive long distances and invest a lot of time for each visit, there is a cost saving to the patient not having to travel. There is a cost saving associated with reduced no show rate and the reduced need for extra staff and overhead.
Quality of Care
Research indicates that not only does telemedicine increase access to healthcare for more individuals, it also improves the quality of care that patients receive. Research indicates that telemedicine patients had fewer hospital admissions, fewer readmissions, were more likely to spend fewer days in the hospital, and were more engaged with their healthcare.
Telemedicine connects chronically ill patients directly with their doctors and other healthcare professionals. This is especially useful if you have questions, but don’t necessarily need to schedule a full appointment, such as if you have follow-up questions about a new medication.
