This month an opinion piece came out on the Forbes website proposing that telemedicine’s day has come. The piece, written by venture capitalist Skip Fleshman, basically predicts that 2015 will be the year that remote interactions between medical professionals and patients become not just possible, but practical. “I spend a lot of time crisscrossing the country chatting with leading healthcare providers and insurers about their technology needs,” he writes. “By far the area they are most interested in is telemedicine.”
He then goes on to describe why 2015 is the year he expects this interest to see actualization. Internet speeds are up. Mobile devices are everywhere. Health records are finally being digitized. Most importantly, there is a demand for it.
