Why Telemedicine

Telemedicine is one of the fastest growing technologies in healthcare today. Distance is no longer a barrier and new devices and platforms are being created everyday. According to IMS research, the use of telemedicine doubled in 2013 and the market is expected to be over $27 billion by 2016.
