Physician Telemedicine Services Could Grow with New Policies

Physician telemedicine services are continuing to grow in use across the healthcare industry, as doctors are using the technologies to communicate with specialists and consults from other facilities as well as tracking their patients’ health through videoconferencing and remote monitoring tools.

The number of patients and caregivers using video consultations and other physician telemedicine services is going to grow significantly throughout the next several years, the Journal of AHIMA reports. A Parks Associates report predicts that the number of families using physician telemedicine services will rise from 900,000 in 2013 to as much as 22.6 million families by 2018.
