From California Healthline:
Consultations with doctors by phone or video conference appear to be catching on, with well over a million virtual visits reported in 2015.
The convenience of “telehealth” appeals to patients, and the notion that it costs less than an in-office visit would make it attractive to employers and health plans.
But a new study suggests that while telehealth services may boost access to a physician, they don’t necessarily reduce health care spending, contrary to assertions by telehealth companies.
