The slow but sure growth of telemedicine continues, and with today’s announcement of a new round of funding for Texas-based Access Physicians, you can bet that hospitals will continue their embrace of the technology … especially given several key factors and market forces putting pressure on hospitals.
Chief among those pressures is the physician shortage — particularly in rural areas where the difficulty in bringing in specializes physicians is especially difficult. Add to that the razor thin margins facing hospitals.
What makes the announcement particularly interesting is the source of the funding. Check out the announcement from our client, Access Physicians, to see more.
