Please join us this Thursday morning April 4th at 8:30am. John Schneider CLU, CHFC will be discussing telehealth and what role it plays in todays benefits arena. This meeting will be at our usual location of 211 Athens Way Nashville, TN.
The continuing doctor shortage throughout the country is driving force behind the recent surge in the popularity of TeleHealth services. Thanks to health care reform and technological innovations in the private sector, the TeleHealth market is booming. It is having a direct impact on the physician-patient relationship and on the health costs associated with an employer-sponsored health plan. Increasing access to primary care doctors while reducing the cost for care at the same time reducing paid time off employees take themselves or family members to the doctor.
