TQ TeleConnection- March 2019

Low adoption of telemedicine may spur patient migration away from traditional providers

Stanford Children’s Health started small when it began offering telehealth services a decade ago, primarily focusing on providing clinic-to-clinic virtual physician visits with limited capability to consult directly with patients in their homes. 

But strong demand for such interactions from both patients and clinicians prompted the system to increase the size and scope of its telemedicine program about three years ago, helping the system to become more patient-centered.
