Reasons to Provide Telehealth Services
It is all about patient care! That is the MAIN reason why organizations are providing telehealth services. AND…patients love it! When a patient is able to receive the care they need in the community where they live from providers they know and in a facility they know how to navigate…what is not to love?!
Healthcare services provided using telehealth technologies have offered patients greater flexibility to manage their health and care. Patients are able to avoid some of the expenses (travel, time away from home/work/family) and challenges of receiving enhanced specialized care. In some cases, accessing services via telehealth may be the only option for receiving the care they need, because traveling in-person to receive their care is simply not an option.
