Telemedicine Gets a Big Bump
We’ve written often about the future of telemedicine and the impact it will have on the healthcare industry—specifically more rural areas where medicine isn’t as accessible. But a new deal between Cleveland Clinic, CVS, and American Well has ensured that telemedicine is going to get a serious boost.
Cleveland Clinic previously tried telemedicine with HealthSpot, but that program didn’t bear any fruit. Within the new program, CVS MinuteClinics in Ohio and West Virginia will offer on-demand care and services from Cleveland Clinic through the Express Care Online program.
As telemedicine continues to evolve, it’s sure to take a more prominent place in many areas where healthcare isn’t easy to come by. And beyond that, learning how to appropriately price services and get patients to pay for them will become increasingly important.
