According to the American Telemedicine Association (ATA), it is the "use of information exchange from one place to another via electronic communications to improve a patient's health status." In the past, telemedicine was mainly practiced in rural areas, as it helped to eliminate the distance barrier between a patient, physician and specialist. Basically, it provided more access to medical services that were generally not available within these rural communities.
There are many ways in which communication can occur between a patient and their physician, but the most common are via telephone, email, smart phones, two-way video and other forms of wireless technology.
Nowadays, telemedicine is not only popular in rural areas, as the demand for this practice has spread throughout the major cities in the United States as well as many countries throughout the world.
Schedule Flexibility Means More Income Potential
Telemedicine can be delivered to patients 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and this can be accomplished from any geographic location. Because of this, physicians have the ability to see more patients, which in turn can increase their income substantially.
Physicians are now able to expand their practice because they don't have to solely rely on patients that come to their offices. And because there is usually a shortage of providers, telemedicine is able to solve this problem as it now increases a physician's capacity to take on more patients regardless of where they live.
Huge Patient Demand
Over the past 15 years, countless studies have documented patient support and satisfaction for telemedicine services. The most important reasons why patients prefer telemedicine are:
In fact, a good example of the growing demand for Telemedicine practices can be seen in five elementary schools from Howard County, that have all decided to opt for this approach instead of letting their students make visits to the doctor's office. This means that the students don't have to leave the school building just to visit their doctor simply because of a skin rash, sore throat or ear infection.
Take a Look at the Following Statistics:
A recent report that was released by RNCOS business consultancy service showed that telemedicine has a potential worldwide growth of 18.5% from now until 2018, and the United States is far ahead in the race compared to the rest of the world. The report also suggested that there will be a growth of $1.9 billion, which is far more than the current $240 million that this industry is worth today.
According to the American Medical Association, 70% of visits to the doctor are for information only, and most of this information can be handled over the phone.
70% of patients had stated that they preferred to use the email or telephone as a way to communicate with their physician.
While patients are able to seek care in emergency rooms, and ER visit can cost around 3 to 5 times more than a typical visit to the doctor's office.
Studies have shown that close to $300 billion of healthcare costs are completely inappropriate, unnecessary and wasteful. Because of this, the cost of insurance has increased for both groups and for individuals.
We use a three-step approach in the process of consulting with our patients:
1. Medical Record Retrieval and Review
The patient has to fill out a complete history and physical form with chief complaint. The physician will then retrieve and review the patient's H&P form, which is done through email. (Subjective and Objective)
2. Physician Tele-consult
After reviewing all of the information, the physician will then contact the patient via telephone and email to review and consult the patient's chief complaint. (Assessment)
3. Prescription(s) and/or Recommendations
After the consultation, the physician will then prescribe or make a recommendation. A hard copy of the prescription will then be faxed over or called in to the patient's pharmacy. (Plan) However, we do not prescribe controlled medications for pain.
We believe that this three step approach, while simple, is extremely effective and efficient, because it allows you to settle in very quickly so that you can focus on making your Telemedicine practice a success.
Once you begin working with us, you have the option to go full-time or part-time so that you can still continue with your current job or medical practice. This flexibility allows you to be compensated based on your schedule and desired patient base, as well as creates the perfect environment for you to work in, regardless of the schedule that you choose.
We believe that practicing telemedicine is extremely rewarding, and if you are as excited as we are at being involved with this industry, we would love to work with you. For more information on how you can join Telemedicine Jobs, please click on the registration button below.
