With 93 percent of physicians believing telehealth is an advantage for patient care, there are four key attributes that matter most to physicians according to a Nov. 7 report from the American Medical Association.
Here are the four attributes that the majority of physicians believe telehealth needs in order to stick around long-term:
1. Eighty percent of physicians said telehealth has to be proven as good as or superior to traditional care.
2. Seventy-eight percent said that it must be intuitive and require no extra training.
3. Seventy-three percent said that peer-reviewed published journals have to deem it safe and effective.
4. Sixty-nine percent said that it needs to have high standards of care.
