One of the most critical measures affecting the market for telemedicine is its return on investment (ROI). What is measured and who is affected is important. For example, patient savings in cost and time of travel have been widely reported. However, the financial impact to governmental, private and employer payers as well as the array of providers is only starting to be fully understood. Where are we going in assessing the cost and revenue affected by telemedicine? What areas currently show the largest ROI and how can this be improved?
