Telehealth remained in its infancy just a couple years ago. In that time, such services have grown and expanded exponentially. Thousands of medical practices now offer such services to patients. A variety of large companies specialize in telehealth offerings. Recently, Specialty Telehealth Services started to grow in availability as well. Patients can now visit specialists over the internet in order to receive care. Many issues and situations can be handled via telehealth.
Specialty services remain a bit more challenging to offer online. Of course, only certain conditions can be diagnosed virtually. Highly skilled and experienced practitioners are required in these roles. They diagnose patients via the web and offer treatment plans. In some cases, telehealth visits result in in-office referrals. That trend could change as telehealth grows and expands in overall capabilities. Telehealth saves patients both time and money in most cases.
