By helping patients connect with physicians and clinical practitioners through telecommunication means such as videoconferencing, telemedicine removes the need for traveling and opens doors to people who live in areas where there are shortage of medical professionals.
Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) October 03, 2017
For traditional in-person visits to the doctor, Americans can expect longer waiting times in the upcoming years. The Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC) recently reported that the shortage of physicians would get worse. By 2030, AAMC projected that there would be as much as 104,9000 shortages of doctors in the US. This will impact a large percentage of population since the number of Americans who are ages 65+ is estimated to double by then. A solution to this growing problem is telemedicine.
Through telemedicine, patients can enjoy numerous benefits including saving time and money while still receiving health care services and consultations from a doctor face-to-face. By helping patients connect with physicians and clinical practitioners through telecommunication means such as videoconferencing, telemedicine removes the need for traveling and opens doors to people who live in areas where there are shortage of medical professionals. Moreover, it is far more cost-effective than traditional visits to the doctor, which comes with travel costs on top of the medical bills.
Recently, Premium Health Connections has announced a new deal with Teladoc that offers more affordable telemedicine rates. Teladoc is one of the premier providers of telemedicine that has a network of over 3,100 licensed doctors who already have years of experience.
