Nearly 30% of physicians use telehealth, survey finds

Almost 30 percent of providers have implemented some sort of telehealth program in their clinical operation, according to mHealthWatch.

The survey, conducted by MobileHelp, also found 85 percent of providers who did not use telehealth programs still saw the advantages that such technology presented. Of those not using telehealth programs, 25 percent say that they plan on implementing them within the next year.

"We have found the results of our survey to be consistent with what our healthcare provider partners have shared with us: telehealth is a means to improve patient access and provider efficiency, especially as value-based care and reimbursement incentives provide a greater share of revenue," said Chris A. Otto, SVP of the MobileHelp Healthcare Division.
