Healthcare moves into the 21st Century
Back in the day, doctors used to make house calls, and patients received treatment that suited their schedule and circumstances. But then things changed. Today you have to make an appointment to see your doctor and wait days or longer to even get to see him/her. Then when you do, you have to drive to their office, wait long beyond the appointed time to actually see them and in 5 minutes you are out of there with a prescription. Your time is wasted, its your gas & your parking fees added on top.
For over 30 years Telemedicine was used by doctors in remote regions to contact doctors in bigger centres with cases they were not capable of treating or diagnosing. Thus a more expert and qualified doctor could be accessed to ensure the patient was properly diagnosed and treated.
Today, Telemedicine has moved from doctor to doctor. It is now available from doctor to patient. Using modern technology, Doctors are once again making house calls and at a fraction of the usual cost or typical insurance costs.

What Are the Benefits of Telemedicine?
Improved Access Now instead of having to go to the ER, Urgent Care unit or after hours clinics, because your doctor's office is closed or its the weekend. Now you can talk to a doctor anytime - day or night, holidays and weekends. You now have access anytime you need it and you will be speaking with a doctor in about 2 minutes - not days.The convenience afforded through telemedicine in some cases has become a life saver. Some having chest pains in the middle of the night learned through their online doctor, that they were actually having a heart attack and not indigestion. This afforded them time to get to the ER which saved their lives.
Cost Efficiencies Telehealth is so much more efficient that it is resulting in huge cost savings - even over insurance plans. The American Health Association has determined that 78% of doctor visits could be replaced by Telemedicine visits. Telemedicine has now made it affordable for even the poor to be looked after. Everyone can now have medical help when they need it.
Improved Quality Studies have consistently shown that the quality of healthcare services delivered via telemedicine are as good as those given in traditional in-person consultations. In some specialties, particularly in mental health and ICU care, telemedicine delivers a superior service, with better outcomes and patient satisfaction. In addition where communications and records are stored in the patient's medical history file, there is protection for doctor and patient from false accusations and needless lawsuits.
Patient Demand Consumers want and need telemedicine. The greatest impact of telemedicine is on the patient, their family and their community. Using telemedicine technologies reduces travel time, waiting time and related stresses for the patient. Over the past 15 years study after study has documented patient satisfaction and support for telemedical services. Such services offer patients the access to providers that might not be available otherwise, as well as medical services without the need to travel long distances.
