As telemedicine platforms evolve, they will often offer a superior and lower cost means of managing chronic illnesses or recovery from procedures. In part, this will reflect the confluence of several aspects of digital health including monitoring, feedback, and data-driven analyses based on the treatment of large numbers of patients. However, these platforms will threaten the status quo; both local doctors, including specialists and physical facilities (such as hospitals). Amazon did not replace retail.
