What role could telehealth technology play in improving care coordination efforts? A substantial one, according to an mHealthIntelligence report.
Writer Vera Gruessner states:
“As the healthcare industry moves forward with strengthening the quality of services and patient outcomes, telehealth technology adoption gains ground as a means for improving care coordination and accountable care. Due to an ongoing primary care doctor and specialist shortage in various rural communities, the possibilities of telehealth technology adoption bring new opportunities for patients to receive quality care without needing to leave school, work, or their home. … Telemedicine offers a more cost-effective solution for providing care to patients who are otherwise disabled or located in a geographically difficult position when it comes to travel.”
