Why Telemedicine, Why Now?
Modern healthcare is a minefield of
challenges. Patients lack access to care,
must often choose between food and medication,
struggle with high deductible health plans or no
insurance at all. Clinicians are stretched thin by
exhaustive documentation requirements and
dispersed geographic coverage while being
obligated to provide the highest quality medical
care. Hospitals and health networks must meet
increasing pressure to improve care outcomes
while lowering operational costs. Medical debt is
the leading cause of bankruptcy.
