Telehealth is becoming increasingly more popular as an option for instant and on-demand healthcare at the tip of your fingers, in your own comfortable space. U.S. employers could save up to $6 billion per year by providing telemedicine technologies to their employees. Part of this savings is due to the reduction in non-emergency ER visits. One study found that telehealth can reduce ER visits by 15 percent or more, which can drastically reduce medical costs to patients and their employers. When you combine that with the fact that the number of patients using telehealth is increasing to over 7 million telehealth users in 2018 from just 350,000 users in 2013, it becomes evident that adding a telehealth option can be an effective way to expand any company’s healthcare benefits and reduce overall medical spending.
