Why Telemedicine?

According to the Association of American Medical Colleges Center for Workforce Studies, there will be a shortage of 46,000 specialists over the next decade. Additionally, many smaller and rural hospitals do not have the resources to hire specialists or their existing specialists are not able to provide 24/7 access.

Improved Access

With a shortage of physicians, there are long waiting times for neurologic expertise at both inpatient and ambulatory healthcare facilities. Telemedicine technology helps improve access for patients and allows healthcare providers and facilities to expand their reach to millions of patients across the nation, in both rural and urban areas.

Cost Efficiencies

With an emphasis on value-based care, the Affordable Care Act emphasizes reducing the cost of care through increased efficiency, reduced travel times, fewer and shorter hospitalizations, and reduced readmissions. The hospital systems are also incentivized to develop programs that promote access to care in their community and do so with minimal cost.

Improved Quality

Studies have repeatedly shown that the quality of care provided by telemedicine is comparable with a traditional in-person consultation, making telemedicine a cost-effective solution to the poorly accessed health systems. It has also been shown that telemedicine provides a superior service as compared with local non-specialist emergent care available in some rural hospitals.

Patient Satisfaction

Superior patient satisfaction has been repeatedly demonstrated with telemedicine technology. The technology reduces travel time and related stress and uncertainty to the patient, waiting time for specialist consultation, and improved access to specialty and advanced care, otherwise not available.

A telemedicine program though TeleSpecialists will do more than just increase the quality and access of your specialty care; it can also help grow your bottom line.

Telemedicine is a great tool to:

  • Reduce length of hospital stay

  • Expand your specialty service lines, without a large investment in equipment or full-time physicians
  • Improve efficiency of your staff and physicians’ time
  • Increase overall patient volume
  • Increase patient satisfaction, improving likelihood of return visits for other procedures

The addition of telemedicine resources benefits the hospital’s staff and physicians as well

  • Your physicians will be more comfortable knowing they have immediate access to neurologists for consultations should they need it.
  • You relieve the “always on-call” burden of local neurologists for acute cases.
  • You will develop an elevated reputation as a progressive organization.

In addition, TeleSpecialists has a flexible pricing structure that charges hospitals only for the services that are used. We will work with facilities of every size, from Hub and Spoke to large Health Systems.
