- Cloud technology, video conferencing, and telepresence has infiltrated nearly every industry and business—including healthcare. You might think such a high-touch, personal field like medicine would not lend itself to long-distance communications, but telemedicine continues to grow, with the latest technology driving costs down and making the process affordable to more healthcare providers and their patients.
As telemedicine’s popularity increases, so do positive patient outcomes. However, telemedicine is not only a positive development for patients. Health care providers across all segments of the industry have experienced the benefits of telehealth. Video conferencing allows health care providers to set their own schedules with reduced travel and avoid the “assembly line” nature of healthcare today. Doctors who have experience with telemedicine praise the technology for helping them deepen patient relationships and stay competitive in the marketplace.
- Since 2000, telemedicine has become increasingly popular. In fact, according to Accenture, health care is the second-fastest growing field within the technology industry. In 2010, there were four telemedicine portals available; now there are 42. These include America Well, TeleDoc, and Doctor on Demand.

As a result, professors have had to approach student engagement in a different way. Audio-visual (AV) technology plays a key role in connecting students and professors in creative and collaborative ways.
