What The Experts Say...
"Telemedicine / Telehealth... An exciting innovation that is absolutely vital."                  
Secretary HHS Dr. Tom Price 

"Those treated through a telehealth platform did not have higher rates of misdiagnosis or treatment failure."
                                                                                                                                                                     American Medical Association  
                                                                                                       
“70% of all ER, Urgent Care and Doctor Office visits can be easily and safely handled over the phone.”
                                                                                                                                                                          Wellness Council of America
 

“We are going to be getting into the telemedicine space where you consult a board certified physician from your computer, your tablet or your phone.”                                               Walgreens Chief Medical Officer, Dr. Harry Leider

"70 percent of physician visits and 40 percent of hospital ER visits can be handled by a phone call."                                                                                                                                                                  National Ambulatory Medical Care

"Telemedicine is becoming increasingly attractive to a health care industry that is re-inventing itself to provide better care at lower costs."                                                                            Peter S. Fine, President and CEO, Banner Health

“This groundbreaking telehealth initiative brings virtual care to more people than ever before, representing a broad step forward for using technology to improve care and expand access for non-emergency medical issues,”                                                                                           Richard Migliori, UnitedHealth Group Chief Medical Officer

“We're realizing that the majority of people's appointments with doctors are for things that could be done online.”                                                                                                                                                     Former Apple CEO John Sculley
 

“It really is mobile - you could be on the train or at the beach and get the treatment that you need.”
                                                                 Verizon Expands Access to Medical Care for Patients with 'Verizon Virtual Visits'
 

"Telemedicine has the potential to deliver more than $6 billion a year in healthcare savings to U.S. companies."                                                                                                                                                                            Towers Watson

"The future of healthcare depends on “keeping people well instead of fixing them when they’re broken."                                                                                                                           Carolinas HealthCare System CEO Michael Tarwater

"The average telehealth doctor visit is nearly four times longer than a traditional doctor visit and 10% to 25% of the actual cost."                                                                                                                                                                       HPM Institute

“Virtual consultations with distant specialists, high-tech monitoring without having to leave home, and
less-expensive patient care options are among the many reasons that the hospital industry is embracing telehealth technologies.”                                                                                                                             U.S. News & World Report
