Webinar: The Top Reasons Physicians Don't Use Telemedicine, and Why They're Wrong

Posted by Teresa Iafolla, Mar 30, 2015

April 8th, 11am PT / 2pm ET

In this free webinar, Dr. Glen McCracken will cover the top reasons why physicians don't use telemedicine, and why none of them hold up when you look at the facts. Not sure about telemedicine, trying to convince a skeptical colleague, or just want to learn more about the benefits of offering evisits? Then this webinar is perfect for you.

Although telemedicine has been around for awhile, the idea of holding virtual visits, or “evisits,” with patients is still relatively new. So it’s only natural that not everyone understands how this new kind of care delivery works. Some healthcare providers might even have decided against telemedicine for reasons that seem logical but are actually unsupported.

Our co-founder and ER physician Glen McCracken knows this all too well. When he’s pitching eVisit to doctors in the field, he often hears the same complaints about telemedicine: “it’s too expensive,” or “the technology’s too hard to use,” or “this isn’t relevant to my practice since I need to do physical exams.”

But in a majority of cases, these reasons don’t hold up. In fact, offering evisits can actually save your practice time and money! We’ve found that once doctors learn more about our own telemedicine solution, they’re usually eager to sign up.

We’ll end with an open Q&A session, where Glen will answer your burning questions about telemedicine.
