Quantified benefits of telemedicine

James Marcin, our pediatric telemedicine director and chief of pediatric critical care medicine, recently published a landmark study demonstrating the enormous environmental benefits of telemedicine.

Marcin found that over 18 years, our telemedicine patients avoided:

  • More than 5 million miles of travel
  • Nine years of travel time
  • $3 million in related costs
  • The release of nearly 2,000 metric tons of carbon dioxide, in addition to other pollution savings
