CUTTING EDGE: USING TELEHEALTH TO REDUCE ABSENTEEISM, IMPROVE PRODUCTIVITY

Linda Alba, Director, Compensation and Benefits, SCOTTSDALE HEALTHCARE
Alan Roga, M.D., FACEP, SVP & General Manager, Provider Market, TELADOC

  • Telemedicine is the  newest approach to delivering  healthcare to employees and dependents.  Board certified medical doctors, available 24/7/365 provide advice, medical diagnosis and prescriptions by phone, email or bi-directional video. Telemedicine  immediately reduces the average cost of an office visit from $170 to $10 for the telemedicine consultation. It also reduces emergency room visits, which average more than $1300 each, by 50 percent, simply because individuals now have a medical doctor to call prior to heading to the ER to see if the ER is necessary or the best type of care. Simple,  a telemedicine consultant to employers and brokers nationwide, will talk about the logistics and ROI of telemedicine and be joined by a client that has recently implemented a telemedicine program.
