DALLAS, TX--(Marketwired - Feb 13, 2014) - Parks Associates digital health research finds 28% of U.S. broadband households have used some type of virtual care communication tool. The firm estimates this figure will increase to 65% by 2018 and virtual care doctor-patient video consultation revenues will grow to $13.7 billion.
"All types of healthcare providers, from hospitals to physicians, need to embrace virtual care to ensure its success," said Harry Wang, director, digital health research, Parks Associates. "Next-generation cloud-based technologies will enable providers to tailor remote care programs to specific populations so they can cost-effectively move patients from an acute-care setting to self-managed behavior."
