Benefits of telemedicine

In the current situation, telemedicine is playing a key role in ensuring the provision of medical care.

  • This reduces the risk of infection in waiting rooms and out in public.
  • The number of visits to doctors’ offices is reduced, which helps to keep the healthcare system from being overwhelmed.
