Advantages of telemedicine
Some of the benefits of telemedicine for patients include:
Convenience: Patients do not have to take time away from work for an appointment. There is also no travel time or associated expenses, such as paying for gas or child care.
Increased access: Patients in rural areas can obtain specialty services, that they otherwise might not get without traveling a large distance for an in-person visit. Similarly, patients who live in federally designated, underserved areas have increased access to the healthcare they need.
