Telehealth is changing the healthcare business. It wasn’t until the 2020 pandemic when patients began turning to telehealth, even though experts have been promoting its benefits for years. The potential is huge: It is estimated that 20% of emergency room visits and 24% of office and outpatient visits could be shifted to virtual care delivery.1 The question is how quickly providers are able to adapt and begin offering telemedicine solutions and in return receive added value and lower costs. Siemens Healthineers has the solutions and experience to help healthcare systems thrive in an ever-changing healthcare environment. Benefits include reduced pressure on hospital emergency departments, more efficient allocation of healthcare resources, and thus patient experience.
Siemens Healthineers has been strengthening data security connections, optimizing hospital workflows, and more with our telehealth solutions throughout the world. Here are a few stories highlighting the benefits customers have already experienced.
