You’ve all heard the term “telemedicine”. Telemedicine is the gateway to the future of digital healthcare. In today’s healthcare climate, convenience is key. Patients more and more are preferring easy access to healthcare services, over in- person interactions.
Employers are benefitting from Telemedicine also it contributes to their overall reduction of healthcare costs, as it maximizes physician access and offer members convenience without sacrificing quality of care.
Telemedicine reaches people that otherwise wouldn’t have access to medical care, such as patients in rural areas, those who are homebound, or those who just can’t take time off work. It also increases access so patients don’t unnecessarily run to the ER or UC.
Telemedicine is improving absenteeism as it decreases travel time away from work, and patients don’t have to miss work or arrange childcare.

“When our son was diagnosed with cancer, Presbyterian was great in helping us get the specialized care he needed. They arranged for our son to be flown to Phoenix Children’s hospital for the care he needed, and we were also able to fly with him. Presbyterian also approved getting our other kids tested to be sure they were not at risk for the same issues, and this gave us much “peace of mind.”
