Adopting a tehealth solution can seem like a daunting task. Maybe you’re thinking about the pains of transitioning your own technology systems or the introduction of mandatory EMRs several years ago, so you might be thinking that telehealth can’t work for your practice. Telehealth doesn’t have to be complicated or impersonal. With benefits like seeing your own patients, at a time that works for both of you, in a way that means billable hours for your practice, telehealth should be considered a great option for any medical provider.
As more and more specialty practices are joining the telehealth movement, patients are seeing access to better, more affordable care while providers are maximizing time spent with patients with the most urgent needs.
