Strong Patient Interest in Telemedicine

A Software Advice survey revealed that 75% of patients who have never used telemedicine said they were interested in trying such services in place of an in-person medical visit

Of those 75% of patients, 39% identified as being "extremely interested" or "very interested."

71% of the overall respondents pool claimed they would "strongly prefer" or "somewhat prefer" online care for minor medical ailments, citing such reasons as not having to travel to receive care (21%) and quality of care equaling or exceeding in-person care (21%). Only 6% of respondents alleged that they saw no benefit to telemedicine.

The numbers are undeniable: patients are looking for ways to make their health care experience more convenient, more fulfilling, and more affordable. And they view telemedicine as the solution.
