Telemedicine Is On the Rise and RxPense Should Be the Platform of Choice
In June 2015, it was reported that MDLive, a leading provider of virtual healthcare services, raised $50 million from Bedford Funding. A few months earlier, it was revealed that MDLive had partnered with Walgreens, America’s largest drugstore chain, to offer $49 virtual doctor visits through the pharmacy chain’s mobile app. These two events paint a clear picture of telemedicine being on the rise.
If you need further proof that telemedicine is poised to explode in importance, there are plenty of statistics that you can refer to. According to iHealthBeat, nearly 90% of healthcare executives “expect telemedicine to transform the U.S. healthcare system in the next decade.” BCC Research tells us that “the global telemedicine market is expected to grow from $11.6 billion in 2011 to $27.3 billion in 2016. HIS states that “the number of patients using telehealth services will grow to 7 million in 2018, up from 350,000 in 2013.” I could provide additional stats, but I think those given make the point.
With telemedicine set to play such an important role in healthcare in the coming years, it’s important that we give people the right tool to fully take advantage of what lies ahead. Capable of doing more than any other similar product, the tool that people need is clearly RxPense. The device is specifically designed to connect people with healthcare, but it can do so much more than just let patients experience virtual doctor visits.
RxPense dispenses medicine, notifies caregivers if patients miss a dose, is capable of capturing, monitoring and storing vitals, and gives doctors access to their patients’ medical information. There is no other device on the market capable of doing everything that this one can. It’s truly a remarkable piece of machinery.
Though RxPense’s abilities are impressive, it’s really what the device can do for people that’s truly inspiring. Claiming that it has the potential to improve the quality of someone’s life is hardly hyperbole. It even has the potential to prolong life, as it designed to ensure that its users adhere to their treatment regimens. This, of course, leads to better medical outcomes.
The potential impact RxPense could have in other areas can’t be understated either. By allowing patients to receive care at home and assuring that they take the right pills at the right time, the machine could help lessen the burden on the healthcare system. It could also allow American businesses to save a ton of cash. After all, Towers Watson has stated that telemedicine has the potential to “deliver more than $6 billion a year in healthcare saving to U.S. companies.
