Statistic Info

This is a significant increase that indicates a shift in the way healthcare is accessed and provided. Telehealth has revolutionized how medical advice, diagnosis, and treatments are delivered. It allows patients to consult with doctors from virtually any location at any time of day or night. Telehealth also reduces costs for both patients and healthcare providers by eliminating the need for physical visits, eliminating travel expenses, and allowing for more efficient use of resources.
