PRLog - Jul. 18, 2012 - SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. -- A recent study conducted by Kaiser Permanente found that patients who underwent virtual consultations with medical specialists were very satisfied with the quality of care they received compared to those who experienced traditional visits. The study, which compared satisfaction ratings from patients who had virtual consults with those who had in-person consults, has far-reaching implications for the future of the health care industry. GlobalMed is poised to assist practitioners in implementing the latest telemedicine technologies to provide more convenient and cost-effective health care options to patients.

According to the results of the study, the mean patient satisfaction score was 8.5 on a scale of 1 to 10, regardless of the type of consult the patient received. The study has sparked medical professionals to conclude that virtual consultations may be conducted in lieu of face-to-face specialty visits without any significant reduction in the patient's perception of the quality of care they receive. In fact, many major insurers and large employers are encouraging their members and/or employees to opt for virtual doctor's visits over traditional in-person consultations – especially for minor illnesses. If this trend continues, telemedicine technology will be in high demand in the foreseeable future.
