Telemedicine still struggles to gain traction

Effective Apr 7, 2017
Published Apr 7, 2017

Telemedicine is still a niche business for physician practices and one that’s been slow to expand due to restrictive policies that make billing for services a challenge. But some analysts say the industry may be just a few years away from gaining real traction in the maret.

While major health systems like Kaiser Permanente have already made telemedicine an integral part of their operations, opportunities to enter the telemedicine market are still limited for most small- and medium-sized practices. That’s part of the reason that - like many technology-based mediums - the mainstreaming of telemedicine has been slow to arrive despite the hype.
