from Bloomberg BNA
An increasing number of employers are looking to offer telemedicine—non-emergency healthcare treatment accessed from a remote location, such as the workplace, via electronic means—as an alternative to time-consuming employee doctor visits, according to new analysis from Towers Watson. The New York City-based consulting firm said in an Aug. 11 statement that telemedicine, also referred to as telehealth, could potentially deliver upwards of $6 billion per year in healthcare savings to U.S. companies.
