A new survey of healthcare providers looks at telemedicine, artificial intelligence, and the FDA in 2017. By far the biggest news is how telemedicine has exceeded all estimates of implementation.
Here we see that institutions went from 0% expanding their services (because they didn’t have them yet) to a whopping 53% doing so in just three years.
With the services that are rolled out the response seems to be very positive. 73% of providers are satisfied with them and 33% of those that measure say that 50% or more of their patients return to the service.
HCPs like telemedicine
Patients return (for those that measure)
These services are also creating the desire for providers to break out of their home country and provide international services.
Some other interesting findings in the survey:
- 10% of respondents are using “research-assisted services” (this is what the report calls AI)
- 61% want “elimination of unnecessary ambiguity” from the FDA
- 58% want quicker approval processes
- 81% are planning to expand their telemedicine offerings
- 52% want technology help with monitoring therapy compliance
