93% of Telehealth / Telemedicine Video Calls Replaced Doctor Visits

Telehealth video calls with doctors avoided expensive and time-consuming trips to doctors’ offices or emergency rooms, according to recent analysis.

These medically unnecessary office and ER visits would have cost an average of $103 and $1,067, respectively, according to a fee schedule published by physicianspractice.com.

Given that the average family of four goes to the doctor about 14 times per year and to the ER 1.7 times per year – and that between 50% and 70% of these visits can be handled via a telehealth consultation – savings can accrue quickly.
