Telehealth Trends

Telehealth is expanding and is expected to become a $110 billion industry by 2025 
– all states provide some level of reimbursement for telemedicine services.

This growing technology solution is addressing the following trends:

  • Increasing senior care population and decreasing providers to care for them
  • Acceptance of integrated volume based healthcare delivery model as opposed to a fragmented, volume based model
  • Increasing acceptance of technology interaction between providers and patients (Skype, Facetime) to receive immediate provider guidance
  • Ability to reach rural populations and reduce travel time
  • Increasing devices to utilize telehealth (tablet, smartphone)
  • Increasing patient monitoring in rural areas through Bluetooth enabled clinical devices
