Telehealth Improving Satisfaction of Chronic Disease Patients

Telehealth Improving Satisfaction of Chronic Disease Patients

A recent study showed that patients suffering from chronic diseases, such as depression, anxiety, and or hypertension showed significant improvements after receiving Telehealth treatment.

The time savings involved for the clinician – cutting a typical 15 minute patient consult down to 3.5 minutes for the online review – may also represent financial benefit to the beleaguered healthcare system.”

Telehealth and Telemedicine tactics are looked at as more affordable and effective way of helping patients with chronic conditions, especially those who live in rural areas, having little to no access of healthcare.
