A general hospital
This type of facility works as a full-scale remote hospital, allowing patients to book an e-visit with a specialist doctor without waiting long for the appointment. In the US, wait time is one of the significant pain points accountable for patients’ health deterioration. According to the OECD report on health policies in the selected countries, 27% of US patients wait for their specialty appointment for over a month.
In such situations, telemedicine solutions can be a viable alternative, as they reduce the wait time and expenses for travel.
