Availability of Telemedicine Benefits Continues to Rise

nbgh logoIt was reported in Becker’s Health IT and CIO Review that telemedicine, as a benefit to employees, has increased from 48% of employers to 74% (2015 to March of 2016).  That is a huge increase and you just have to check the stock values of these telemedicine companies to verify that growth.

This data is based on a survey by the National Business  Group on Health.  In addition, UnitedHealthcare reported that the cost of a telemedicine visit is significantly lower than a face-to-face/in-person visit, by about $30/visit.  No wonder employers are offering the service at such a dramatic rate.
