Latest Studies Show Consumer-Directed Telemedicine Solutions Like Consult A Doctor Lower Costs While Providing Greater Access to Affordable, Quality Healthcare.
Date:4/22/2008

New studies determine that telemedicine is the key to transforming

healthcare by making medical care more accessible and convenient to patients while reducing cost. Solutions are needed in response to the

following problems that plague patients and practitioners in today's

inefficient U.S. healthcare system: * Doctors are hard to see. As many as one-in-three people have trouble seeing their primary care physician, and nearly one-in-four have problems

taking time from work to see a doctor. * Patients have trouble contacting physicians by telephone or e-mail. Very few doctors will consult by telephone and less than one-in-four are set up

to communicate with patients electronically. * There are too few doctors in rural areas. Compared to metropolitan areas, there are fewer physicians serving rural patients and patients must travel

further for office visits. * Patients overuse emergency rooms. Because their primary care physicians

are inaccessible by telephone or after hours, many patients turn to hospital emergency rooms. More than one-half of all ER visits are for

non-emergency health problems. * Patients have difficulty getting information during office visits. More

than one-third of physicians do not have the time to deliver enough information to their patients during office visits, and 60 percent of

patients later say they forgot to ask questions during their visits. * Convenience. Telephone medical consults support healthcare consumerism

with a proven solution that is easy to access.
