Video Visits With Patients Are Taking Off

In August, research by Parks Associates specifically focused on the growth of videoconferencing for physician/patient visits. It predicted that virtual visits are about to triple -- from 5.7 million in 2014 to over 16 million in 2015 -- and will skyrocket to over 130 million in 2018.[4]

In California alone, the firm discovered, nearly 50% households with an broadband Internet connection already use an online health service from a doctor (the national average is 42%).
