What's Up, Doc? Tell Me Over My Smartphone, Please

In the US, one of the world’s most expensive markets for medical care, telemedicine providers estimate that savings can range from $200 to $700 per patient visit. For patients, prices start at $9.99 for a medical question posed to a doctor. Parks Associates, a market researcher, says 5.7m doctor-patient video consultations took place in the US in 2014 and that number was expected to reach 16m in 2015.
