- There are strong value propositions for incorporating telehealth into pediatric practices, including quality of care, access, cost avoidance, and market expansion opportunities.
- A key reason to adopt pediatric telehealth is the increasing shortage of pediatric providers, especially with certain critical specialties and in non-metropolitan areas.
- The payment landscape for pediatric telehealth is complicated and varies by state. Reimbursement is an obstacle for many providers but may be poised to improve in coming years.
