5 Healthcare Problems Solved by Telemedicine

with No Comments

Telemedicine expands provider accessibility and improves healthcare quality. In this blog, we discuss the top 5 problems telemedicine solves.

  1. Healthcare accessibility is limited in rural areas.

Telemedicine expands a physician’s reach. Patients no longer need to drive hours to see a doctor. Telemedicine sessions can be held in any state that a physician is licensed to practice medicine in.

 

  1. People without health insurance tend to skip regular visits.

Telemedicine is an easy solution for providers to conduct timed appointments, charging an
out-of-pocket expense. Telemedicine appointments are typically less expensive than in-office visits – usually, because of platform’s convenience, brevity, and lack of third-party expenses.

 

  1. Providers are often not paid for their consultations.

Patients call their providers. It’s unavoidable. With telemedicine, providers can offer a quick and easy way to conduct a session while charging the patient for their time. In this scenario, telemedicine is more formal than a phone call, but less formal than a drive into the doctor’s office.

 

  1. Elderly patients, patients without transportation, and limited mobility patients have trouble visiting their doctor regularly.

But, each of those patient groups most likely have access to a computer, tablet, or smartphone.

 

  1. Poor treatment compliance and follow-up attendance.

Telemedicine makes follow-ups simple. For patients with post-procedure regimens, telemedicine gives the provider the tool to check in with patients to ensure they’re following all necessary instructions.
