Telehealth’s Multimillions Today Forecast Prominence Tomorrow

In the past year alone, three of the nation’s top web-based healthcare companies — Teladoc, MDLive, and American Well — processed over 400,000 medical interactions online, more than doubling the amount processed in 2011. In the past year, numerous telehealth trials, such as in Howard County, MD elementary schools, have begun testing the method’s efficiency, as well as the ability of existing frameworks to integrate it. Harry Wang, Director of Health & Mobile Product Research for Parks Associates, a market intelligence group, takes predicting the telehealth industry’s success one step further:

"The number of doctor-patient video consultations will nearly triple from this year to the next, from 5.7 million in 2014 to over 16 million in 2015, and will exceed 130 million in 2018."
