Since the inception of telemedicine, its apparent benefits is to allow providers and physicians to expand their reach beyond their premises to as far as corner of the world where connectivity permits. This allow providers to maximise their reach especially for those located in a less dense area. This also improve efficiency of healthcare where one specialities can be deployed to where it’s in high demand no matter how far it is.

Provider time is precious (so is everyone’s), but there is always time when there’s scheduling gap or ‘down time’ of 10 mins to 1 hour. Provider can maximize their work time by slotting in telemedicine calls in between by using telemedicine software which has waiting room functionalities, so they can take in call whenever they want.
The most obvious benefits of telemedicine is no other than bringing convenience to both patients and providers. Convenience in terms of time wasted in transportation for either providers or patients, waiting long hour outside the physician waiting room, wasted timed when patient missed appointment, patient too sick too even leave their home.
