Why Telehealth?

By removing barriers of time, distance, and provider scarcities, telehealth can deliver important medical and other health and education services where they are needed most; in remote, rural areas and medically underserved urban communities.  As states across the country and employers, private payers and consumers prepare for the implementation of the Affordable Care Act, telehealth becomes an increasingly important tool for increasing access to care, improving the quality of care that lead to better patient outcomes, and ultimately reducing the per capita cost of care.
