The benefits of telemedicine

Posted by Paula Turnquist

In this age of technology it’s no surprise that healthcare has adjusted to fit the needs of both busy patients and doctors by offering telemedicine services. While telemedicine can’t be used for all medical purposes and can be a difficult transition to some, employers will find that with telemedicine everyone is a winner.

Let us s​how you how you can save 15-30% on your company's total medical  costs. 


Access to care, anywhere. With telemedicine you can receive a diagnosis, treatment, and even fill a prescription remotely through a laptop or smartphone from home or the office. Telemedicine cuts down on taking hours or days off from work for smaller issues, reduces absenteeism because of these issues, and improves productivity.


Don’t sweat the small stuff. Telemedicine options cover most common illnesses. For example, Kelsey-Seybold’s Telemedicine program covers conditions such as a common cold, back pain, and urinary tract infection. And with Telemedicine at Kelsey-Seybold, participating physicians can be seen same day or next day, so patients can receive care without worry.


It’s easy on everyone’s wallet. Aside from improving an employer’s bottom line by keeping employees at work, telemedicine can also help employers reel in new talent. With technology becoming a huge part of healthcare, and millennials taking over the job market, offering telemedicine is a sure fire way to attracting employees who crave flexibility and efficiency. And, bonus, your employees don’t have to stress about co-pays, because telemedicine isn’t technically insurance.
