Typically, investing in telemedicine can enable more people to access healthcare costs while at the same time saving on transportation costs. In this program, people can communicate with healthcare providers without having to physically go to the clinic. The program focuses on establishing a mobile strategy in healthcare companies. Further, it includes digital clinics that can be accessed through mobile phones and computers, which will make this mobile strategy easier.
The program looked at costs of implementing a mobile strategy and digital health clinics and weighed this cost against the relevant transport costs that will be saved after transformation of the system. In addition, the benefit of the improvement of health care due to the resultant increase in health care access was added to the advantage of reduced transportation costs (Aspe.hhs.gov, 2015).
Telemedicine has not only improved access to health care but has reduced costs and improved the quality of healthcare (Aspe.hhs.gov, 2015). However, there were disparities in access between the access in rural and urban areas which was attributed to the inequalities in information.
