TeleHealth is changing the way we think about connecting to health care. With rising costs and plans trending towards consumer-driven designs, telethealth continues to expand in the marketplace. Employer interest in telemedicine is growing, and implementation is expected to reach 37% by 2015, with another 34% considering the option by 2017.*
Telehealth services benefit employers through lower costs, reduced absenteeism and increased productivity. It provides employees with low-cost alternatives to emergency room and office/urgent care visits for minor illnesses, bringing convenient access to healthcare and less time away from work.
