Summary
The healthcare industry in the United States is currently facing significant challenges in providing quality medical care at an affordable cost. Telehealth has the potential to address those challenges by increasing access to care, reducing healthcare costs, improving quality of care through patient-provider communication, and allowing for enhanced monitoring of chronic health conditions. While the Affordable Care Act of 2010 promotes the possibilities of telehealth, the enactment of telehealth reimbursement laws and provider licensure requirements occur at the state-level, providing no consistency in policies amongst states. This research seeks to understand the telehealth industry in the U.S. including current trends in implementation, acceptance, challenges, and opportunities. Understanding how healthcare regulations impact the implementation of telehealth technologies will allow policy changes to be made to improve the widespread implementation of telehealth in the U.S., specifically direct-to-consumer telehealth.
