Increasing Telehealth Services Could Lead to Saving Millions in Rural Health

According to a recent report, expanding telehealth access can potentially save millions of dollars in rural health costs. Telehealth can reduce costs associated with unnecessary hospitalizations, emergency department visits, and transportation expenses.

Additionally, telehealth can improve access to specialists, which can lead to earlier diagnoses and more effective treatments.

This report estimates that if telehealth were used to replace just 5% of in-person visits for certain health conditions in rural areas, it could result in savings of $4.3 million per year.
