Telemedicine is Racing Forward to the Future

Telemedicine is booming, especially since the COVID pandemic began. Since 2020 as patients and doctors have been forced to use telehealth options, many for the first time, everyone is beginning to understand the benefits of this method of healthcare. Many of the previous barriers to embracing telemedicine are finally falling by the wayside. 

One of the bonuses of having to embrace telemedicine has been that patient and physician concerns are actually being addressed and resolved, which means the doors are wide open for more telemedicine to come. 

Some of the concerns about telemedicine are that 41% of patients have limited internet access, which is currently being resolved with federal broadband initiatives. There have also been concerns about a possible increase in misdiagnosis, but studies reveal that there is no significant difference between in-person or telehealth diagnoses. Licensing has also been a concern, but recently, legislation is allowing physicians to reach across state lines. Another big concern has been patient privacy, however 66% of adults believe privacy issues should not limit their use of telemedicine. 

Telemedicine has come a long way in just a year and the future is ripe with opportunity for this kind of medicine to keep growing by leaps and bounds.
