What Are the Benefits of Telemedicine?

  • No travel time. Neither patients nor healthcare providers have to travel, saving time for both parties.
  • Convenience and efficiency. With electronic health records (EHRs) and medical histories of patients available, healthcare providers are able to perform a visual exam and interview patients anytime, anywhere.
  • Quick access to healthcare and patient retention. The speed at which patients are able to be seen is increased, meeting a top need and desire of patients, which in turn helps with patient retention.
  • Improved health outcomes. Health outcomes are improved due to earlier diagnosis, leading to earlier treatment and reduced mortality rates, leading to a drastic reduction in healthcare costs.
  • Reduced healthcare costs. Healthcare costs are reduced across the board, from all of the above.

Other benefits include:

    • Home monitoring for homebound patients.
    • No risk of disease transmission.
    • Remote patients have easier access to clinical services.
    • Remote hospitals can provide emergency and intensive care services.
    • Patients are empowered to play an active role in their healthcare.
