As the global telehealth market continues to grow, facilities and clinicians across most specialties are embracing the benefits of telehealth to improve medical care. Health systems are seeing the cost-effectiveness of incorporating a telemedicine strategy into their organization, while physicians, advanced practice providers and psychologists can enjoy a better work-life balance. Most importantly, telehealth solutions increase patient access to care.
Telehealth is defined as a collection of means for enhancing healthcare, public health and education delivery using healthcare technology. It facilitates the diagnosis, consultation, treatment, education and care management of a patient through telemedicine services.
We have a dedicated telemedicine department ready to match qualified and trained clinicians with facilities. We also provide an expert healthcare technology team with advanced telemedicine equipment.
