Benefits of Telemedicine Prove Substantial
Integrated Telemedicine platforms and video consultation technology are becoming a clear and effective tool for extending care to patient populations. Patients, most notably with chronic conditions, that engage with this growing technology have shown increased satisfaction with their physicians and the quality of care delivered, while at the same time providers are able to deliver high quality care in a timely, cost-effective and convenient manner.
A white paper, “Telemedicine – What is Your Strategy” outlines the statistics gathered in order to show evidence of the benefits of Telehealth:
“What this study shows is that telemedicine technologies such as ours present established healthcare providers with a huge opportunity to not only manage costs, but to also extend care and improve patient satisfaction,” says Dave Skibinski, President and CEO of SnapMD. “In comparison to other forms of healthcare delivery and clinical settings, an on-line consultation is shown to be a very effective medium in terms of experience for the patient as well as a cost efficient and convenient option. By connecting patients to a multidisciplinary team of clinicians remotely, a secure video-based, integrated consultation system can help increase the brand value of the practice, and maximize patient engagement and patient retention.”
SnapMD’s Virtual Care Management private-label Telehealth platform delivers an easy to use, comprehensive and efficient solution to healthcare providers seeking to extend care to their patient populations.

We fully support the high value of established healthcare brands in the markets they serve, and the trusted relationships physicians and care teams have built with their patients to ensure quality and continuity of care.
George Tierney, co-found of SnapMD says, “Telemedicine will be a part of the solution for healthcare systems and their patients. Our company was founded on the notion of contributing to the solution, which is why we have always believed that this technology requires partnering with healthcare providers directly.”
