AGENCY OF RELEVANCE
More people are choosing to video chat with doctors on
their mobile devices; 39% of adults would be willing to
have an appointment with a physician via smartphone.
E-doctor visits can be as efﬁcient as a 17-minute
consultation via webcam costing only $50. We
anticipate that Telehealth will continue to disrupt the
healthcare industry in 2016, with insurance providers
ﬁnally recognizing this novel form of consultation.
Do you see this innovation as
totally positive, or do some
aspects of it leave you
perplexed? If cost and
convenience were not an issue,
would you still prefer to see a
‘real’ doctor? See for yourself
with this app.
