Presentation Abstract: Telemedicine is a broad category that is comprised of 5 primary components. Consequently, it is important to specifically identify which of these component solutions will enable the desired benefit(s) for a given healthcare provider. The benefits range from optimizing staffing, to allowing expansion beyond the current service area for minimal cost, to reducing the 30-day readmission rate to population management. However, there are additional considerations to weigh when leveraging this technology including state legislative restrictions, malpractice exposure and reimbursement issues.
