NCPA Study: Government, Insurers Keep Medicine in Stone Age
Date:11/28/2007

n-office visits to $17 for phone consultations. His

office assists patients with insurance billing and also allows them

to pay using PayPal.

Telemedicine provides important new opportunities to improve health care and overcomes a wide range of problems in the traditional health care system. For example:
-- Doctors are hard to see. As many as one in three patients have

trouble seeing a primary care physician, and nearly one in four

have problems taking the time from work to see their doctor.

-- More than half of all emergency room (ER) visits are for nonemergency

health problems. ER visits are extremely costly and could easily

be avoided if patients could contact health care professionals by

phone or by e-mail at any time or day of the week.

-- More than 125 million Americans have chronic conditions, yet most

are not receiving appropriate care, in part because monitoring is

complex and expensive. Yet programs to manage chronic medical

conditions are beginning to use remote monitoring, which research

has shown improves patients' adherence to protocols and can be

outsourced to low-cost, qualified medical providers.

-- The use of electronic medical records improves the quality of care

and reduces medical errors, allowing better coordination of patient

care among different providers.

"Health insurers and the government are keeping the practice of medicine in the Stone Age," said Herrick. "Telemedicine provides patients with convenient high quality care for a lower cost."

The NCPA is an internationally known nonprofit, nonpartisan research institute with offices in Dallas and Washington, D. C. that advocates private solutions to public policy problems.
