1. Convenience for the patient
No need to leave home for a trip or worry about acquiring an infection from another patient. Patients spend a lot of money and time seeking healthcare. With a telehealth visit, the doctor comes to the patient on their phone, laptop, or another digital device.
Imagine how the costs of travel, parking, childcare, and taking time off work can accumulate. The additional effort that it takes to travel to a remote doctor’s facility can be stressful, but it is the costs that can really add up. In some rural regions, patients must travel overnight to reach specialists in more urban regions. Oregon Health and Science University saved their patients $6.4 million annually in travel costs by implementing a telemedicine program.
One UPMC patient survey showed that 40% of their patients said if they did not have access to a virtual visit, they would skip treatment because of the burden of excessive travel to their facilities.
With telehealth, clinicians can extend their patient base beyond facilities, extending hours, and creating new and more convenient models for their patients.
