Free Download: Telehealth & Remote Patient Monitoring in 2018: Virtual Visits Spike, Wearables Wane

Telehealth, the fastest-growing segment in healthcare, is no longer reserved for rural populations. Instead, telehealth is proving to be a game-changer across the care continuum, as the industry tests the use of tele-psychiatry, tele-ERs, tele-ICUs and even telepharmacy to bridge care gaps and to make healthcare more accessible and efficient. The percentage of healthcare organizations using telehealth rose from 63 percent in 2015 to 74 percent in 2018, according to the latest Telehealth & Remote Patient Monitoring Survey by the Healthcare Intelligence Network (HIN).
