Healthcare Benchmarks: Telehealth and Telemedicine

With rising healthcare costs fueling much of the debate surrounding healthcare reform, many healthcare organizations are turning to telehealth and telemedicine to lower costs and improve efficiencies while expanding patients access to services - particularly in rural areas.

How common is the use of telehealth for clinical and non-clinical purposes, and for which purposes and medical conditions is remote monitoring most often employed? Which technologies comprise a telehealth solution, and how has telehealth affected levels of healthcare access, efficiency, cost and patient compliance?

An increasing use of telehealth points to a healthcare future where no patient is left behind due to a lack of access. 2010 Healthcare Benchmarks: Telehealth & Telemedicine provides actionable information from 139 healthcare organizations on their utilization of telehealth & telemedicine.
