History of Telemedicine
The now and future of healthcare.
When did telemedicine start? From house calls to urgent care clinics, on-demand healthcare has always been a hot commodity. After all, nobody schedules strep throat or a twisted ankle ahead of time. The modern patient expects 24/7 access to their doctor, and physicians today are able to use telemedicine to monetize remote assistance. Technologies like Facetime and Skype seem brand new, but actually, telemedicine has been around much longer than most people think–from the first half of the 20th century.
