PRIME’S REMOTE MEDICAL SERVICE
“About 22% of employers with 1,000 or more employees currently offer telemedicine services, and another 37% of employers plan to offer telemedicine services to their employees by the end of this year.”
Telemedicine is changing the way employers provide medical care. There is no doubt about it. As technology has become more a part of our daily lives, employees have become more open to the idea every day, especially when they realize telemedicine means more convenient, accessible healthcare. We, too, are starting to see the benefits: better care outcomes, less ER visits, happier employees, and more positive outcomes. As a result, telemedicine is on the rise.
PRIME’s remote medical service and technology are quickly becoming commonplace for industrial, commercial and government organizations across the globe. Telemedicine enables medical providers to evaluate, diagnose and treat patients remotely using the latest technology. In many situations, telemedicine delivers a cost-effective alternative or enhancement to traditional in-house medical staffing.
