Immedicare’s telemedicine services create wide-ranging service quality benefits for patients, carers, health and social care teams. Many of the improvements these services deliver, also translate into clear financial benefits.
Video consultations are a vital tool in tackling urgent care challenges, as they facilitate clinical consultations away from traditional hospital settings. The savings telemedicine generates from avoided hospital admissions and emergency department attendances apply right across the health economy, as providers save on patient transport as well as admission tariffs.
Telemedicine promotes greater productivity and more efficient use of staff resources, better cost control, and ongoing medical education and training. Clinical expertise can be scaled and shared across geographic boundaries – the normal cost barriers to physical meetings are simply wiped away.
