Telehealth Achieving Its Objectives

It's intuitive that telehealth can be a faster and potentially lower-cost model for delivering care. But could telehealth positively affect physicians' treatment decisions? A new study suggests that may be the case, at least in several respects. mHealth Intelligence reports that a yearlong Humana telehealth study that has yet to be published found that physicians with a virtual care platform prescribe fewer antibiotics than they do for in-office visits and are more discerning about tests and follow-ups, resulting in more effective treatment.
