Telemedicine: What’s Next – 2014 Provider Survey

25 September 2014 Health Care Law Today Blog

Telemedicine is a booming sector for health care, stemming from a strong desire to improve the overall quality of care and reach new patients in new markets both around the block and around the world. The benefits of telemedicine abound — with new patients comes the potential for increased revenue, as well as a competitive edge over other regional health care providers.

For organizations seeking operational efficiency and greater oversight, telemedicine is a powerful tool. It can be used to open doors in research and academics, allowing information to be shared safely and securely for the greater advancement of medicine.

As with any technological advancement, there are new issues for your organization to consider – such as cost, reimbursement, resources and technology, and physician buy-in. In the quest to stay at the forefront of medicine, it is easy to become overwhelmed on where to start.
