Here’s a nice article in Forbes that mentions Hello Health and a few quotes from me:
Then there’s the matter of reimbursing doctors for their time. In America, most physicians prefer to deliver a quantity of medicine due to the reimbursement model of healthcare instead of ensuring quality medicine through good communication, time and establishing personal relationships. As a result, Parkinson believes telehealth will be a good way to augment care between in-person visits but doubts it will ever completely replace in-office visits. “Given the current physician reimbursement model as defined by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, physicians are paid less to see you via telepresence than in the office. Why would a doctor want to sacrifice income just to use telepresence?” Parkinson notes.
