St. Petersburg, FL (PRWEB) March 31, 2012
St. Petersburg Florida based telemedicine provider MD247.COM revealed today that according to a recent review, the global telehealth industry is poised for explosive growth over the next decade. The reasoning behind the growth is two-fold, in that the United States has an aging population Baby Boom population, which is hitting milestone years for failing health, and this then pairs with the reality that the government simply can’t pay for everything. Unable to invent a “money tree,” or scam the world that there is such a thing, public healthcare programs like Medicare are finding that they need to reduce the number of hospital visits and do everything that they can to prevent return admissions for the same health issue. In an effort to deal with this problem MD247.COM was first founded locally, and then rolled out state by state until full market coverage was announced in March 2012.
The field of telehealth sounds sterile when considering its applications for hospital monitoring, but there are methods with which to bring the technologies into use for the everyday moments like a child with an earache. The shift from the hospital having the power to the patient having the power is a shift toward a system called “telemedicine,” or possibly the type of concierge twenty-four hour Talk to a Doctor “NOW” programs that athletes and rock stars enjoy. A patient being able to call the medical professional when he is needed, instead of waiting for the hospital to send a patient home with an application that monitors health, saves dollars and leaves a patient feeling valued instead of ripped-off. This all sounds fantastic until the thought of fees comes up.
Where other telemedicine plans scam potential clients, or perpetrate a ripoff, MD247 has a policy of customer satisfaction and patient health coming before the competition for a dollar. Company Founder Thomas Meehan feels that a healthcare business must first provide for its clients, and that quality will return to the business tenfold in customers each year.
